The Congress on Friday handed over the reins of Punjab Congress to former CM Captain Amarinder Singh.
With Amarinder Singh heading the organisation, the party also wanted a non-Sikh in a key role to balance the religious equation.
Amarinder claimed Sukhbir is only betraying his frustration and “congenital obsession” of blaming Congress for their own wrongs.
