Punjab Congress News Live Updates: Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi Friday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve the matter of farmers’ protest and resume dialogue with the protesting farmers. “I demanded that the three laws should be withdrawn,” Channi told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Modi.
Meanwhile, two days after Navjot Singh Sidhu stepped down as Punjab Congress chief, throwing the ruling party in the state into fresh turmoil, a key issue that led to the crisis appeared to have been resolved Thursday with Sidhu and Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi reaching an agreement on “contentious” appointments. Sources told The Indian Express that both sides agreed during a three-hour meeting to leave the decision on the appointment of an Advocate General to the Congress high command.
On Thursday, Amarinder Singh laid rumours to rest, confirming that he will not join the BJP, but will be leaving the Congress. In an interview with NDTV, Singh, who was forced to step down as CM earlier this month, said he will not be “treated in this manner”.
