Singh resigned as chief minister of Punjab last month after a bitter feud with Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu and infighting in the state unit.
Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu pitched for a "Punjab Model with a 13-Point Agenda to be part of the Congress manifesto for the 2022 Assembly Elections".
Singh's remarks came after Surjewala claimed that 78 of the 79 Punjab Congress MLAs had written to the party leadership seeking Captain Amarinder’s ouster.
Alleging that the former Punjab chief minister was playing into the hands of people with whom he had no ideological ties, Rawat said Singh should have stood with the Congress leadership to save democracy.
Following a crucial meeting between Punjab Chief Minister Charanjeet Singh Channi, it appears that Navjot Singh Sidhu is likely to remain President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee till February next year.
Following his meeting with BJP leader Amit Shah on Wednesday, former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Thursday said that he will not be 'humiliated by Congress.
Sources said the former Punjab chief minister is learnt to have discussed the farmers' issues, besides the internal security situation in Punjab with Shah.
The cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu said his fight has been on ‘issues’ and a pro-Punjab agenda.
Two Punjab Congress office-bearers also resigned from their posts following Navjot Singh Sidhu's resignation from the post of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) President on Tuesday,
The announcement came days after Congress leader Charanjit Singh Channi was appointed the Chief Minister of Punjab following the ouster of Captain Amarinder Singh.
The new Punjab cabinet comprising 15 ministers will take oath on Sunday, the state’s Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi announced after having deliberations with the party high command in Delhi.
Tewari has served in various capacities in the State as well as in the Central Government. Currently, he was serving as the Additional Chief Secretary (ACS), Agriculture & Farmers Welfare and Governance Reforms in Government of Punjab.
The game changed in the last minutes as the names for the CM and Deputy CMs changed in the last 24 hours and Charanjit Singh Channi emerged as Punjab's first Dalit Chief Minister.
Getting emotional at his first press conference as the chief minister, Charanjit Channi said that he comes from a poor family that did not have a roof over their head.
Two deputy CMs Sukhjinder Randhawa and OP Soni also took oath in the ceremony. Ex-CM Capt Amrinder Singh gave the ceremony a miss.
In the outgone cabinet of Captain Amarinder Singh, Minister for Prisons and Cooperation Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa (62) is a Jat Sikh face, three-time Congress MLA from Gurdaspur district in Majha region of Punjab. He became an MLA in 2002, 2007 and 2017.
A minister in the earlier Captain Amarinder Singh led Congress government in Punjab, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa said he is a ‘Congressman’.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said he hopes Captain Amarinder Singh will not take any such step, which will harm the Congress party.
