Chandigarh, May 17

Amid hectic parleys to broker peace between the warring ministers and Chief Secretary Karan Avatar Singh, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has called a meeting through videoconferencing on Monday. Health, medical education and food and civil supplies ministers along with the Chief Secretary would be participating.

The three ministers — Balbir singh Sidhu, OP Soni and Bharat Bhushan Ashu ndash; will take part in the discussions. The development has raised a question mark on the unanimous decision of the ministers to abstain from any meeting attended by the Chief Secretary. The ministers had earlier staged a walkout during a meeting on excise after the Chief Secretary allegedly misbehaved with them.

The three warring ministers — Manpreet Badal, Charanjit Singh Channi and Sukhjinder Randhawa — who had led the charge against the Chief Secretary are not participating as the matter does not concern their departments, said officials.
