Punjab Congress Legislatures Meet Today: Is It All Over For CM Amarinder Singh?

Chandigarh: Are Punjab CM Amarinder Singh’s days on the chair numbered? It may sound like an assumption, but the Congress High Command seems to have finally woken up to the fact that it is time to stem the rot keeping in mind the assembly elections next year. With no sign of truce between the two warring factions led by the CM and state Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu, the High Command has called a meeting of the legislature party here today following requests from a number of party MLAs.

As pet reports, Punjab Singh has called a meeting of Congress legislators at 2 pm before the CLP meeting.

Congress general-secretary in charge of Punjab, Harish Rawat declared the schedule of the CLP meet on Twitter late Friday. “The AICC has received a representation from a large number of MLAs from the congress party, requesting to immediately convene a meeting of the Congress Legislative Party of Punjab. Accordingly, a meeting of the CLP has been convened tomorrow at 5 pm tomorrow,” he tweeted.

 

With several MLAs openly voicing their resentment towards Singh’s leadership, the veteran leader could be facing a barrage of questions during the all-important meeting. And if a majority call for his ouster, then the curtains could be down for the man who has been grappling with intra-party dissidence for the last two years.

On the contrary, Sidhu would be weighing his chances for a shot at the CM’s post ahead of the state elections. But the final call will lie with the High Command which needs to adopt a pragmatic approach with the polls around the corner.

Now the latest, according to The Indian Express, “Ahead of a meeting of the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) in Punjab on Saturday evening, the party’s high command is learnt to have asked Chief Minister Amarinder Singh to resign to facilitate the election of a new leader. The embattled Chief Minister, however, appears unrelenting so far. Sources said he spoke to Congress president in the morning and told her he is being humiliated and he will instead resign from the party.”
