Chandigarh, December 10

AICC general secretary and Punjab affairs in charge Harish Rawat today met Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to discuss important issues related to the state Congress.

In the wake of the much-awaited re-induction of Navjot Singh Sidhu into the Punjab Cabinet, the meeting holds significance as Rawat reached Chandigarh last evening to meet Capt Amarinder Singh.

Though there's no official statement on the meeting between the two leaders, sources said Rawat met the CM last evening and today to work out the contours of Sidhu's induction and department to be allocated to him. In wake of the ongoing farmers' agitation, the re-induction could be delayed as party leaders want to wait for the agitation to end.

Rawat confirmed meeting with the Chief Minister, but refused to share details of the meeting. The former Uttarakhand Chief Minister had played a criticial role in breaking the ice between Sidhu and Captain Amarinder. Rawat has been on the job to bring warring factions in the state Congress on board. He had also met senior party leader Partap Singh Bajwa recently.

Party sources said the two leaders met to also discuss the way forward for the party in the changed political scenario in the run up to the 2022 Assembly elections.
