The Punjab Congress crisis seems to be far from over as the expected reshuffle in the Captain Amarinder Singh cabinet is now all set to trigger another round of acrimony between the chief minister and new state party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. Even before the long overdue reshuffle, Congress leaders of the two warring camps have already started to put pressure on the high command to ensure plum posts in the cabinet.
CM Amarinder is reported to have discussed the issue with interim president Sonia Gandhi and has also pressed for the “need to have a proper balance” while carrying out the rejig. Sources in the party said that after Capt Amarinder returned from Delhi, some leaders loyal to Sidhu have rushed to the national capital hoping to brief the senior leadership on what they believe could be the “right mix” in the new cabinet. `
