Former Punjab minister and Congress lawmaker Navjot Singh Sidhu’s name is among the probable for the position of Delhi unit Congress chief.
According to sources, there are suggestions to give Sidhu the responsibility of Delhi unit party president, which was earlier held by former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who died on July 20.
“It is likely to be decided after the National party president is finalised. There is a potential possibility that Sidhu is given the Delhi PCC responsibility.”
But Sources says that Navjot Singh Sidhu will not leave his position in Punjab at any cost as he thinks that doing this will destroy his reputation and his political land in Punjab and chances of INC in Delhi are not very exhilarating.
Sidhu, an MLA from Amritsar East, was given Power, New, and Renewable Energy Resources portfolio after a Cabinet reshuffle in June, following which he sent his resignation to Chief Minister Captain Amarinder on July 15.
The cricketer-turned-politician had earlier submitted his resignation letter to Congress president Rahul Gandhi instead of Captain Singh.
