‘Don’t undermine CM’s authority’, ex-Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar hits out at Navjot Sidhu

Chandigarh, September 30

In what is being seen as a rebuke to PCC chief Navjot Singh, his predecessor and senior Congress leader Sunil Jakhar came down heavily on the former alleging that he was trying to `undermine’ the authority of a Chief Minister and urged the party high command to `put its foot down and clear the air’.

Jahkar took to micro-blogging site Twitter to lash out at Sidhu. He tweeted: “Enough is enough. Put an end to attempts to undermine the authority of CM time and again. Aspersions being cast on selection of AG & DGP is actually questioning the integrity/competence of CM and Home Minister to deliver results. It’s time to put the foot down and clear the air.”

The hard hitting statement comes just after Sidhu tweeted that he will be available for discussion with Channi at Punjab Bhavan at 3 p.m today. Jakhar has been very vocal in his criticism of Sidhu during the recent crisis which saw the resignation of Capt Amarinder Singh as the Chief Minister.  Sidhu had resigned as PCC chief on Tuesday precipitating a crisis.
