The Congress is engaged in ending internal strife ahead of next year’s assembly elections in Punjab. In this connection, Punjab MLA and former minister Navjot Singh Sidhu reached Delhi on Tuesday and met the panel formed by Sonia Gandhi. Speaking to the media after meeting the three-member panel, Navjot Sidhu said, ‘I came here to convey the voice of the grassroots workers to the high command. My stand of democratic government will continue. The power of the people must be returned. I have clearly said the truth. ‘ Navjot Singh Sidhu met the Kharge-led panel for about two hours.
Sidhu said that my opinion is still the same. I have conveyed the truth and it will only win. The panel also met several people from Punjab on Monday. These included State President Sunil Jakhar. A total of 26 leaders of Punjab have been met by the panel so far. These leaders also included several MLAs and ministers of the Captain Amarinder Singh government. It is being said that these people have complained that only one faction is running the government. In addition, bureaucracy has been given more power than elected representatives.

Not only this, many leaders of the anti-Captain camp have alleged that CM has got away from the leaders of his own party and it is also difficult to meet them. Apart from this, Dalit leaders also raised the question of weak representation of their community. Many legislators have also demanded early justice for those killed in the Kotkapura police firing.
Kharge’s panel will meet some more leaders on Wednesday
Sources say that on Wednesday also the panel will talk to the leaders of Punjab. In Punjab, the rage between Captain Amarinder Singh and Navjot Sidhu has been openly seen many times. In such a situation, the party is afraid that this difference may be overshadowed in the coming elections. In such a situation, the party president Sonia Gandhi has prepared a panel, which will try to find a solution by talking to all the leaders of Punjab.
