Chandigarh, July 20 (MNN) Senior Punjab Cabinet Minister Brahm Mahindra on Tuesday said he welcomed the appointment of Navjot Singh Sidhu as the PPCC President but won’t meet his till the former cricketer “resolved his issues” with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh.
In a statement issued here, the Minister said the decision to appoint Sidhu was taken by the Congress high command and was thus welcome.
“However, I will not meet him (Sidhu) till he meets the Chief Minister and resolves his issues with him,” Mohindra said, adding that Amarinder Singh is leader of the Congress legislative party and he (Mohindra) is duty-bound to follow him.
Besides the CLP leader, the Chief Minister also heads the Cabinet of which he was a part, the Minister remarked, making it clear that unless the new Punjab Congress chief sorted out all issues with Amarinder, there was no possibility of him (Mohindra) meeting the former cricketer personally.
“We have a collective responsibility and hence I will refrain from meeting the newly appointed state party President till issues between him and the CM are resolved,” Mohindra said.
