“Two months back, the three-member panel headed by Kharge, after hearing all the MLAs from Punjab, had announced that the elections would be contested in Punjab under Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi’s leadership. Now, it is for Rawat to explain that when the decision was taken that elections would be contested under Captain Amaridner Singh’s leadership,” MLA Pargat on Sunday.
Pargat said Navjot Sidhu’s remark ‘itt naal itt vaja daunga (will give a befitting reply)’ was “in all probability aimed at Rawat” but the media twisted it for the party high command.
About the show of strength by CM Singh’s camp through a dinner hosted at sports minister Gurmeet Rana Sodhi’s residence, Pargat took a dig: “If so much effort were made on important issues then all this would not have been needed now. Amarinder Singh was the undisputed leader of Punjab but I feel sad that a person of his capability failed to meet expectations of the people.”
