New Delhi: Navjot Singh Sidhu, whose resignation as the Punjab Congress chief is pending with the Congress high command, met party leaders in the national capital on Thursday and said any decision taken by them would be acceptable.
Talking to reporters after a meeting, Sidhu said he has shared his concerns with the Congress leadership, and has “full faith” in their decision. This was his first meeting with the party high command since he tendered his resignation on September 28.
“I expressed my concerns regarding Punjab and Punjab Congress to party high-command. I’ve full faith in Congress president, Priyanka ji and Rahul ji. Whatever decision is taken, it will be for the betterment of Congress and Punjab. I’ll follow their directions,” Sidhu told reporters outside the Congress headquarters.
Punjab in-charge of the party Harish Rawat said a final announcement would be made on Friday.
“Navjot Sidhu has clearly stated that the decision of the Congress President will be acceptable to him. The instructions are clear that Navjot Sidhu should work as Punjab Congress President and set up organisational structure. An announcement will be made tomorrow,” Rawat said after the meeting.
Sidhu, who was made the Punjab Congress chief in July this year, resigned last month due to internal differences with the party. His resignation was, however, rejected by the Congress high command.
His resignation came days after Captain Amarinder Singh resigned as the state chief minister, saying that he was feeling humiliated by the Congress.
