Chandigarh, June 4

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today met AICC general secretary and Punjab affairs incharge Asha Kumari and PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar over lunch here on Thursday.

The agenda revolved around the implementation of poll promises made by the Congress in 2017, hiring poll strategist Prashant Kishor for the next Assembly elections and restructuring the PPCC.

The meeting was held in the backdrop of the CM asking his political secretary to take opinion of MLAs on hiring of the strategist. “The talks are in a premature stage. The CM has to take the final call on the issue,” said a party source.

An aide of the CM, associated with the PPCC, is against hiring Kishor. He says the importance of the leaders will diminish due to his style of functioning. The source said regular utterances by Rajya Sabha MP Partap Bajwa aimed at the CM were also discussed. It is, meanwhile, learnt that the central party leadership was upset over the state Congress not taking it into confidence before starting talks with Kishor. — TNS
