CHANDIGARH: A day before his meeting with AICC’s Punjab minder Harish Rawat and Congress general secretary K C Venugopal in Delhi, PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday said in a video that the party high command had facilitated him, but no compromises can be made to move forward. He also cited the state’s poor financial health as a hurdle to resolve the key issues of the state, including the 18-point agenda of the AICC.
Sidhu had quit as the Punjab PCC chief last month over his objections to the appointments of the state DGP and advocate general. Ahead of the meeting slated to discuss Punjab Congress’s organisational issues, Sidhu’s video and his “no compromise” remark has fuelled speculation about his next move. Well-placed sources said the central leadership may accept Sidhu’s resignation.
In the video posted on his social media handle, he said: “Someone who understands my love for Punjab will never point a finger at me… You should facilitate and the high command has done so... But how will we move forward if we make compromises? ... the system rises to bite you. We will fight… In politics, 5 can become 50, and 50 can be zero.”
