Chandigarh, October 24, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Punjab Pradesh Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu Sunday targeted the newly formed Charanjit Singh Channi-led government in the state and reiterated that he will stick to the real issues and not let them take a backseat.
Sidhu took to Twitter Sunday and fired three shots at one go without directly referring to Chief Minister or his government.
In an oblique reference to the government of his party in the state, Sidhu raised some serious questions and asked “Who will bring back state’s resources to the state’s coffers, instead of them going to private pockets??”
Sidhu, who worked as a Minister in Capt Amarinder-led Government, and was instrumental in getting him out at the fag end of his Chief Ministerial term, is now not satisfied with some decisions of one-month-old Channi Government. A series of meetings between the CM and Sidhu with the mediation of Congress’s top brass could not yield any results.
The cricketer turned politician who had resigned from his post recently, was cajoled by the Congress high-command to continue. While earlier Harish Rawat and now Harish Chaudhary continue to dodge themselves by claiming that all is well in the Congress, the fact of the matter is that Sidhu has been at war with Channi after welcoming and accompanying him for just two days.
Sidhu, after his resignation as PPCC Chief, had brought forth three points as primary reasons for his disagreement with the current dispensation. He had objected to the inclusion of certain leaders into the Channi-led Cabinet and also raised questions over the selection of officers for the post of DGP and Advocate General.
On Sunday, Sidhu tweeted, “Punjab must come back to its real issues that concern every punjabi and our future generations … How will we counter the financial emergency that stares upon us ? I will stick to the real issues and not let them take a backseat !”
He added, “The choice is clear between irreparable damage and the last chance for damage control … Who will bring back state’s resources to the state’s coffers, instead of them going to private pockets ?? Who will lead the initiative for resurrection our great state to prosperity !!”
He concluded by saying, “Let the mist clear, reality shine like the sun upon the roadmap for revival of Punjab, shunning those who protect the selfish vested interests and focus only on the path that will lead to Jittega Punjab, Jittegi Punjabiyat and Jittega Har Punjabi !!! “
