The ongoing Punjab Congress crisis showed no signs of resolution on Monday as Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh geared up to keep his date with the AICC panel on Tuesday but rival Navjot Singh Sidhu set to skip the crucial meeting.

And parallel to the Mallikarjun Kharge-led AICC panel’s interface with the CM, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi decided to give a two-day audience to a section of Amarinder Singh baiters, starting today.

It is becoming a tough call for Congress, as the party may have to choose between the CM and Sidhu as it has clearly become untenable for the two to work together, said the AICC sources. They also added that Sidhu’s decision to decline the invite for Tuesday’s meet has sent out wrong signals.
