The Punjab MLAs reiterated that the decision on the potential candidate for the office of Punjab CM rests in the hands of the party’s high command. Congress MLA Kuldeep Singh Vaid said: “We are waiting for Sonia Gandhi’s orders. Immediately thereafter, a decision will be made in the CLP meeting.”
“The resignation of Captain Amarinder Singh is no small issue. There are backgrounds and problems behind the resignation of Captain Amarinder Singh. There was dissatisfaction among the MLAs, regardless of the work of the government of Amarinder Singh, ”he told the media here. In response to the political developments in Punjab, Congress MLA Pargat Singh said, “It all depends on the high command of Congress. This is the prerogative of the high command. The CLP meeting was held yesterday and a mandate was given.”
However, both MLAs refused to comment on the potential candidate for the post of Punjab CM. The CLP unanimously passed a resolution on Saturday to give Congress chief Sonia Gandhi the power to appoint the new Chief Minister of Punjab after Captain Amarinder Singh resigned.
The second resolution passed by the CLP praised Amarinder Singh. Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh stepped down from office on Saturday ahead of the party lawmakers meeting in the faction-plagued state unit when the party’s high command decided to hold a changing of the guard in the border state ahead of the parliamentary elections early next year.
