Amarinder Singh To Lead Polls: Congress After 'Remove Captain' Calls

The Congress has backed Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh a day after a section of party leaders rebelled afresh against his leadership. Senior party leader Harish Rawat said he will lead the party in the coming state elections.

The demand for Mr Singh’s removal from the post of the Punjab Chief Minister has resurfaced after he targeted the advisors of Navjot Sidhu over their comments on Pakistan and Kashmir.

Yesterday, 23 party MLAs, including four ministers, held a meeting and said they will write to the Central leadership on the issue.

The MLAs including cabinet ministers Tript Rajinder Bajwa, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, Charanjit Singh Channi, Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria and state Congress general secretary Pargat Singh — known to be close to Navjot Sidhu — attended a meeting on the issue on Tuesday.

“Captain should be replaced else the Congress won’t survive… we will meet Sonia Gandhi over the issue,” said cabinet minister Tript Bajwa.
