Chandigarh, June 9

Amid reports of Navjot Singh Sidhu interacting with some of the disgruntled party MLAs, CM Capt Amarinder Singh hosted a luncheon meeting for some legislators from the Amritsar parliamentary constituency. Sidhu, however, was not present in the meeting.

Among those who attended the lunch were Inderbir Bolaria and Raj Kumar Verka, besides Fatehgarh Sahib MLA Kuljit Nagra. After the meeting, the MLAs said issues pertaining to the development of their constituencies and efforts to contain Covid-19 were discussed. The CM informed the MLAs that Rs 25 crore was being released for each Assembly segment.

Party sources said the invites for the lunch were sent three days ago after reports of AAP wooing Sidhu surfaced. The CM has already rubbished these reports on Sidhu, stating that he was "very much a part of the Congress" and had been in touch with the party high command in that capacity and if Sidhu had any issue, he could meet him.

Verka, who met Sidhu a few days ago, said concerns of Sidhu on Bargari and drugs were the concerns of all party leaders. "As the concerns are being addressed, Sidhu will be back to work for the party. It will happen soon and he will campaign for the party in the 2022 elections," said Verka. — TNS
