Harish Rawat played an important role
After Asha Kumari, former Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat was made in charge of Punjab Congress. Harish Rawat was very active about Sidhu as soon as he took charge. During this, Rawat met Sidhu many times and also assured him of playing a big role in the party. As a result, Sidhu was again active in his constituency.
Captain showed softness for the first time
Rahul Gandhi’s Kisan Bachao rally was organized in Moga to protest against the three agricultural laws. Navjot Singh Sidhu also attended this rally. This was the first time Sidhu attended any party function after resigning. During this time Navjot Singh Sidhu lashed out at the central government as well as his government and asked many questions to the Captain government. However, the captain did not answer any of Sidhu’s questions during the rally.
Expected return to government
Political speculation has intensified in Punjab after the captain’s invitation. It is being speculated that after this meeting, perhaps even the frozen ice may melt in their relationship. If this happens, the path of Sidhu’s return to the Punjab government will also open.
