Amarinder Singh’s Tea Party Ahead Of Navjot Sidhu’s Inauguration Tomorrow
The inauguration of Navjot Singh Sidhu and four working presidents under him in the Punjab state Congress will take place tomorrow. Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will attend the event along with his veteran supporters. Mr Singh has invited party leaders to tea at Punjab Bhawan tomorrow, after which they will proceed to the party office for the programme.
Raveen Thukral, the Chief Minister’s media advisor tweeted, “Punjab CM has invited all MLAs, MPs and senior party functionaries at Punjab Bhawan for tea at 10 am on Friday. They will all then go to Punjab Congress Bhawan together from there for the installation of the new PPCC team”.
The Chief Minister has already met part the new team, images of the meet were also posted along with the tweet.

Mr Sidhu was not part of the delegation that met Mr Singh and the two are likely to meet tomorrow for the first time since the trouble within the party escalated.
Mr Sidhu is yet to extend the public apology the Chief Minister has demanded for his disparaging tweets. But sources said it is likely that there has been some rapprochement between the two.
The cricketer-turned politician was elevated as the Congress president earlier this week after months of infighting that threatened to scuttle the party’s re-election bid in next year’s assembly polls.
