Ministers Brahm Mohindra seek action against Cong dissidents

Chandigarh, October 10

Days after Cooperation Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa upped the ante against his former Cabinet colleague Navjot Singh Sidhu over the latter's "conduct" at a rally in Moga, Local Bodies Minister Brahm Mohindra today demanded action on the repeated acts of "indiscipline" by party leaders, be it utterances by Sidhu or other dissidents speaking against the Chief Minister.

Mohindra said it was not about what happened in Moga or Patiala in the presence of Rahul Gandhi and Punjab affairs in charge Harish Rawat. Sidhu, he said, had shown indiscipline before resigning from the Cabinet as well. "As a sensible leader, one has to apologise for any act of indiscipline. Still, the Chief Minister was magnanimous enough to share the stage with Sidhu and other dissidents to give a message of unity when Rahul Gandhi visited Punjab," he said.

Joining the issue with Mohindra, Randhawa said this was a serious matter. "The indiscipline stemmed from the very fact that party leaders were acknowledging Sidhu's utterances in the Moga rally as 'Sidhu's style'. Rawat should have snubbed Sidhu on the stage as the slip to conclude the speech was sent by the AICC general secretary," he said. Reacting to reports quoting him expressing concern over the delay in the reconstitution of the PPCC, Rawat, on his Facebook page, wrote that he had only said there was a need to focus on the reconstitution of the PPCC. He categorically denied having mentioned the name of PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar. Terming Jakhar as an important pillar of the party, Rawat said if there was any issue, he would have directly talked to him instead going to the media. — TNS
