Amid the internal tensions in the Punjab Congress, Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday was appointed as the president of the Punjab Congress Committee, along with four working presidents.
Mr Sidhu and the four working presidents were appointed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi with immediate effect, according to an official statement from the All India Congress Committee.
Ms Gandhi had reportedly individually spoken to MPs from Punjab on the issue of elevating Mr Sidhu and seemed pretty determined to do the same, as per a senior leader in conversation with the Hindu.
The decision surfaced after some heavy political engagement in Punjab and Delhi.
