Navjot Singh Sidhu may get bigger role

Navjot Singh Sidhu had met both Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday amid his ongoing tussle with Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh.

Amid continued infighting in the Punjab Congress, cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu may have gained crucial lead in his fight against Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. If sources are to be believed, Sidhu may get an important role in the party after an organisational revamp.

Sources said that taking the anti-incumbency factor into consideration, the three-member committee has suggested reshuffle in the cabinet. Sources further added that Congress’ central leadership is upset with CM Captain Amarinder Singh.

Sidhu, a former state minister, on Wednesday met party leader Rahul Gandhi and India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Priyanka Gandhi in New Delhi.

Though there was no word about what transpired during the crucial meeting, there was speculation that Sidhu may agree to his new role that the Gandhis have for him in the revamped state unit of the party ahead of next year’s Assembly polls.
