In Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh’s resignation as Chief Minister on Saturday made it clear that Sonia Gandhi is not running in the Congress and the party is dominated by former president Rahul Gandhi and general secretary in charge of Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi. Congress sources say that Captain Singh was supported by party president Sonia Gandhi while Rahul and Priyanka remained completely by Sidhu. On his behest, Sidhu was also given the command of Punjab Congress.

Meanwhile, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said in Kerala today that there should be a change of leadership in the Congress. He said that if Gandhi is to be made the party president, immediate steps should be taken in this direction. Tharoor said that Sonia Gandhi herself wants to resign from the post. To make the party strong, all the leaders want that the party president should be changed, but no one in the party can speak against him. Everyone respects him, but in view of the political developments that are coming out now, a change in the Congress leadership is necessary.

Who will be the new Chief Minister in Punjab, the Congress Legislature Party has entrusted this responsibility to the national president of the party. Congress sources said giving Sidhu the reins of Punjab Congress and the role of the Congress high command in the foundation of the prolonged Sidhu-Amarinder tussle cannot be ruled out. He also says that Priyanka Vadra and Rahul Gandhi have been in favor of handing over the command of Punjab Congress to Sidhu from the very beginning.

Rahul and Priyanka believe that the command of Congress should come in the hands of the youth. However, Sonia Gandhi understands the political importance of Captain Amarinder Singh, so she has been in favor of holding elections under his leadership to bring the Congress back to power. Sources have argued that in the middle when Congress general secretary in-charge Harish Rawat was talking to both the sides to reduce the squabble, he had made a clear announcement that the next election to the Punjab Assembly would be fought under the leadership of Captain Amarinder Singh. During that time he went to Punjab to meet the Congress President.
