All is not well within the Punjab Congress as former cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu has sharpened his attack on Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on the issue of farmers.
Even as the Chief Minister has gone for a direct confrontation with the Centre over the three new Farm Laws, Sidhu has slammed the state government for its crop procurement model and ‘lack of storage and marketing ability’.
While taking note of Sidhu’s criticism, the Congress leaders said that though the matter was serious, Sidhu has criticised the Central government also on the issue. The Congress does not think that Sidhu will go for “Ghar Wapsi” to the BJP.
Congress state in-charge Harish Rawat had said, “Sidhu is an asset to the party.”
On the day of former Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s tractor rally, Sidhu shared the stage with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Rahul, and there also he criticized the state government.
