Amritsar, July 21
As many as 62 Punjab Congress MLAs gathered at new Punjab Pardesh Congress Committee chief Navjot Singh Sidhu’s residence here on Wednesday, it was claimed by Sidhu aides.
From there, they moved to the Golden Temple in the afternoon to pay obeisance.
This was followed by their visits to the Durgiana Mandir and Ram Tirath Sthal.
Amid a standoff between Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Sidhu, the occasion is seen as a show of strength.
Apparently, Sidhu had called all Congress MLAs, but according to his aides, 62 of them turned up.
The MLAs present included Raja Warring, Raaj Kumar verka, Inderbir Bolaria, Barinder Dhillon, Madan Lal Jalapuri, Harminder Gill, Harjot Kamal, Harminder Jassi, Joginder Pal, Pargat Singh and Sukhjinder Randhawa.
Meanwhile, the BJP has taken a dig at this show of strength. BJP national spokseperson RP Singh on Twitter said the match had begun, with Sidhu 62 and Captain 15.
