Navjot Sidhu Restart Work as cheif Ahead of Punjab Polls

Hinting that some sitting MLAs may face an axe, PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday said merit and winnability would form the basis for selection of candidates for the upcoming Assembly elections in Punjab.

The selection of candidates for the elections could pose a major challenge to the PCC Chief with fears that dropping of sitting MLAs could cause heartburn and some may shift loyalties to former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.

He had withdrawn his resignation recently claiming that he had buried his differences with Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi.

Presenting a picture of unity, Sidhu was accompanied by Punjab CM and party affairs in charge Harish Chaudhary. “Winnability and merit will be the basic criterion. We will also verify charges of wrongdoing by certain MLAs before deciding on the ticket,” Sidhu said.

The PCC chief has initiated an exercise to assess the past performance of the sitting MLAs and to offset any anti-incumbency, dropping some of the MLAs. Flanked by Channi, Sidhu asserted that all the leaders were united in the run up to the battle for Punjab. “Our aim is revival of state economy and we will would put up a united front and go full esteem in the campaign in the coming days,” Sidhu added.

He said the list of district presidents and other office-bearers would be out in the next five to seven days and the party would enter the field with full strength.

He reiterated that politics was not his sole aim but would try to work towards the welfare of the people of Punjab which could only be achieved through better governance and revival of the economy.

Pointing out that the next two months would set the roadmap for the government in 2022, he said, “What was not done in four and a half years is now being done in two months. “
