Discussion on election strategy and issues- Tiwari
After appearing before the committee headed by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, Tiwari said, “There is no quarrel in Punjab Congress. As far as the interaction with the committee is concerned, it is confidential. Whatever he asked, I have put the answer in front of him. What should be put before the public, they are discussed. This is not happening for the first time and not for the last time.
This committee met many MPs of the state and former state presidents yesterday and took their opinion. On Monday and Tuesday, about 50 ministers, MPs and MLAs made their point before the three-member committee headed by Kharge. In the last three days, more than 80 Congress leaders of the state have appeared before this committee and expressed their views. Most of them are MLAs. Apart from Kharge, Congress General Secretary and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat and senior Delhi Pradesh Congress leader JP Agarwal are included in this committee.
Sidhu also met the committee
Significantly, in the recent few weeks, there has been a sharp rhetoric between Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu. MLA Pargat Singh and some other leaders of the State Congress Committee have also opened a front against the Chief Minister. Sidhu met this committee on Tuesday and gave his views. After meeting the committee, he said that “Truth can be oppressed, but cannot be defeated”.
