Journey has just begun, says Sidhu; no meeting with CM yet

Announcing that his journey has “just begun”, Punjab Congress’s new president Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday pledged to work with every “member of the Congress family” to fulfil the “Jittega Punjab” mission, a day after being appointed to the key post after months of a bitter spat between him and chief minister Amarinder Singh. The 57-year-old cricketer-turned-politician, who had a busy day calling on leaders and ministers, thanked the Congress leadership for appointing him head of the Punjab unit, asserted he would strengthen the party’s organisation in the state. Will work along every member of Congress family in Punjab to fulfil the mission of ‘JittegaPunjab’ as a humble Congress worker to give power of the people back to the people through the Punjab model and the high command’s 18-point agenda … My journey has just begun,” Sidhu said in another tweet. Monday’s developments are a sign that the crisis is still simmering. Amarinder, who had opposed Sidhu’s appointment, is furious with the Amritsar East MLA for making “derogatory” tweets and statements against him.
