Sidhu's Rally Sparks Internal Strife: Congress Leaders Face Suspension Amid Infighting
Sidhu's Rally Sparks Internal Strife: Congress Leaders Face Suspension Amid Infighting

Amritsar: On Saturday, Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring took disciplinary action by suspending party leaders Maheshinder Singh and his son Dharampal Singh from the party's primary membership. The decision followed their organization of a rally in Moga district, featuring party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.

The Punjab unit of the Congress had previously issued a show-cause notice to the father-son duo on January 21. The notice, prompted by their failure to inform local leadership about the rally, required a response within two days to avoid disciplinary measures. Congress' Moga in-charge Malvika Sood Sachar filed a complaint, alleging the leaders' non-disclosure of the event and lack of communication.

In response to the show-cause notice, Sidhu expressed solidarity with Maheshinder and his son, posting on X, "Will stand by the Nihalsinghwala family, come what may 'æ. Third Generation Congress family - the roots of the grand old party 'æ there cannot be any fruit without the root !!!"

The internal strife within the Punjab Congress became apparent last month when Navjot Singh Sidhu began organizing rallies without consulting the party's state unit. Leader of Opposition Partap Singh Bajwa urged Sidhu to participate in the party's programs instead of independently setting up his platform, highlighting the ongoing tensions within the party.
