New Delhi: Ex Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief Navjot Singh Sidhu is set to meet state Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Thursday at 3 pm, as per information available from the source.
Sharing notes on Twitter, Sidhu said, "Chief Minister has invited me for discussion... will reciprocate by reaching Punjab Bhawan, Chandigarh at 3:00 PM today, he is welcome for any discussions."
It was on Tuesday that Sidhu had tendered his resignation as Punjab Congress chief, as he is upset over the bureaucratic setup and his commands not being followed after Cabinet expansion in Punjab. Earlier on Wednesday, Channi had urged the "Congress family's head" Sidhu, to resolve issues. Sidhu has earlier stated that he cannot compromise with his ethics, moral authority and pointed out that he didn't want a "repeat of a system of tainted leaders and officers in the state".
Sidhu's resignation as state party chief has intensified the crisis in the Punjab Congress and triggered discussions and deliberations in the party. A minister and three Congress leaders, considered close to him, stepped down from their posts delivering.
