Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi met with Amrinder Singh, who is one of the frontfunners to occupy the post of state congress chief.
However, Congress has achieved three seats in Punjab Lok Sabha election which was far better than the disappointing performance in north India. Bajwa’s leadership is being questioned as Singh moved the party to defeat in 2007 and 2012.
Sources said, currently Singh and Soni are the frontfunners and Singh decided to meet Sonia Gandhi to judge the tendency of the party. Rahul planned to schedule the second meeting with Amrinder Singh in coming week.
Rahul interacted with several leaders and MLAs where he got the remarks that “ Singh could look for options outside the party”. Bajwa also alleged that Singh is planning to make a separate party.
