“Navjot Sidhu Will Remain Punjab Congress Chief, Resolution Soon”: Aide

New Delhi: Navjot Singh Sidhu will stay Punjab Congress chief and lead Congress in next year’s election, his aide said today, indicating that the cricketer-turned-politician may backtrack on his resignation.

“The issue will be resolved soon. Navjot Sidhu will continue to be Punjab Congress chief,” Mohammad Mustafa, adviser to Navjot Sidhu.

“The Congress leadership understands Navjot Sidhu and Sidhu is not beyond the Congress leadership. He is not Amarinder Singh, who never cared for the Congress and its leadership,” Mr Mustafa said. According to him, Mr Sidhu “acts emotionally at times” and the Congress leadership understands.
