Pargat Singh slams Harish Rawat, asks when did Congress decide to contest Assembly polls under Amarinder Singh

Harish Rawat had said that in 2022, the Congress party will contest elections in Punjab under the leadership of Amarinder Singh.

As the Punjab elections are approaching, state Congress crisis is deepening day by day. Till now, there were talks of sourness between Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu. But now, the matter has reached to Punjab political affairs in-charge Harish Rawat. Rawat, who was made in-charge of Punjab by the Congress high command, now the Navjot faction has turned against him.

Punjab Congress General Secretary and MLA from Jalandhar Cantonment Pargat Singh has now questioned Rawat’s statement backing the Chief Minister. Singh questioned and sought clarification on Rawat’s statement as to when had the Congress decided to contest the Assembly polls under CM Amarinder Singh.

Pargat Singh asked Rawat to explain when was the decision taken, as the committee formed earlier under Mallikarjun Kharge, had decided that the upcoming polls would be held under the command of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.

Harish Rawat had said that in 2022, the Congress party will contest elections in Punjab under the leadership of Amarinder Singh.

Terming Rawat as a seasoned politician, Singh said his statement has adversely affected the Punjab politics, Indian Express reported.

On being asked about Navjot Singh Sidhu’s ‘he won’t spare anyone if not given the freedom to take decisions’ comment which was considered as a rebellion against the Congress High Command, Pargat Singh said the comment seemed to be directed towards Harish Rawat, not party high command. Sidhu has great respect for Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, he added.

Sidhu on Friday had urged the party leadership to allow him the freedom to take decisions and warned of a befitting reply if the demands were not heard. His comments came hours after his adviser Malvinder Singh Mali resigned after Rawat’s ultimatum.

In the past, Pargat Singh has questioned his party’s government over several issues including the alleged delay in justice in cases of desecration of a religious text and the subsequent police firing in Faridkot in 2015.
