Chandigarh, April 7

Infighting within the Punjab Congress got here out within the open Thursday at a protest assembly when a colleague dared Navjot Singh Sidhu to take names if he felt anybody within the party was concerned in wrongdoing.

The embarrassing scenario for the party arose when Punjab Congress youth chief Brinder Singh Dhillon interrupted Sidhu, a former Punjab Congress Committee (PCC) chief, in his speech.

Sidhu was addressing the Congress leaders and employees throughout the protest against the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central authorities over continued rise in petrol, diesel, and cooking gasoline costs exterior the Punjab Congress Bhawan right here.

Sidhu spoke about selling folks with clear picture for the party’s revival within the wake of its decimation within the current Punjab meeting elections.

“I did not take anybody’s name nor will I do that. ‘Kyonki yeh public jo hai sab jaanti hai’ (because the public knows everything),” Sidhu mentioned cryptically.

He mentioned it is going to do nobody any good, in the event that they select to fill their very own coffers. “No matter how many addresses you deliver, nothing will happen,” he mentioned.

He mentioned he can be the primary one to take a stand if any “false” FIR was lodged against any Congress employee.

“But if money is recovered from anybody’s house, I will not stand with him,” he mentioned. “Kyonki choran naal nahin khadna (I am not going to support the corrupt).”

“I will not point a finger at anyone. A hundred people may have spoken against me but Sidhu never spoke against any Congress worker,” he mentioned.

Dhillon stood and interrupted Sidhu shouting at him to attract his consideration.

“Sidhu sahab, what you are doing is wrong,” Dhillon mentioned confronting him.

“Kyon nahi naam laoge, kyon nahin naam laoge (why won’t you take names?),” Dhillon requested Sidhu in Punjabi.

“If something is wrong then call it out, and if something is right then say that too,” he mentioned, pleading Sidhu to call those that he thinks indulged in corruption.

Dhillon then informed Sidhu if he was not going to take names then he was indulging in mere “drama”. “Phir tusi drama kar rahe ho (then you are doing a drama),” he mentioned.

The warmth from his party employee made Sidhu cease his handle.

Later, Dhillon by way of a tweet appealed for unity within the party and clarified that his outburst was not against any particular person.

“No fight against any individual, we should not be throwing mud at each other as it was a collective defeat. We have suffered because of infighting and if we do not course correct, we will be finished. Time to stand together and fight for public not for individual glorification,” he posted.

A bit of Punjab Congress leaders have been holding conferences not too long ago and batting for a key position for Sidhu forward of the seemingly announcement of the brand new PPCC chief.

The Congress obtained a drubbing within the Punjab meeting polls successful solely 18 seats, because the Aam Aadmi Party stormed to energy bagging 92 of the 117 meeting segments.

Sidhu was defeated by AAP candidate and political greenhorn Jeevan Jyot Kaur from Amritsar East constituency.

Following the ballot debacle in 5 states—Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, Manipur, and Punjab—Congress president Sonia Gandhi had requested the party’s state unit chiefs to place of their papers, and Sidhu, too, tendered his resignation.
