Captain Sidhu, Pargat to meet Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today


Chandigarh:  Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh has taken decision to meet Congress Vice Captain Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday to know whether he has some personal differences with cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Amarinder Singh will meet him in his residence in the morning. In July, Sidhu took decision to resign from the Bhartiya Janata Party. Two Awaaz-E-Punjab members Simarjit Bains and Balwinder Bains met with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) few days back.

During the meeting, poll strategist Prashant Kishor, Olympian Pargat Singh and former Union minister Ghulab Nabi Azad will also attend the meeting.

"We regard his ability and his notoriety in Punjab. We have given him two alternatives to serve Punjab. To start with is that of vice president pastor and second is that of Lok Sabha candidature from Amritsar which has as of now been emptied. In addition, his significant other also can challenge from Amritsar in the event that he challenges as MLA. His nearness will reinforce Congress a considerable measure," Amarinder Singh said.

He said, "Sidhu is a great leader than Bains brothers".

The reports uncovered that the Congress Party is taking a gander at giving Sidhu both the parts of star campaigner and in addition vice president serve pick.

He included, 'Sidhu rang up six Punjab Congress pioneers, including two MPs, to educate about his acceptance into the gathering.'

With under three months to go for surveys, AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal is on a 11-day visit to Punjab and has as of now restricted in Bains siblings.

"Sidhu appreciates a colossal level of adequacy with both Hindu and Jat Sikh votes, given his VIP status and insurrectionary stand," said a Congress source.

Sources close to Sidhu affirmed he had met both Azad and Priyanka Gandhi a week ago.
