Congress ties itself in knots in Punjab and at the Centre

Congress  is managing to  hold  on to four states and Punjab was supposed  to be the safest of all until the Gandhi’s  decided to play ball. 

Sidhu was made the PCC president and party veteran, the man who won the State for the Congress Amarinder Singh, was forced to make an ignominious exit. In came Channi as Congress  played the Dalit card hoping to get a sizeable  chunk of the 33% vote.

Channi started doing things his own way instead of being a puppet of Sidhu and a stop gap CM. This annoyed Sidhu  who saw the CM’s chair drifting away. 

The cry baby and political  turncoat was up to his antics again and tendered his resignation to  the party high command. Now it was the turn of Chief minister Channi to placate Sidhu. 
Well for the time being a truce has  been achieved  and Channi has assured Sidhu to look into his grievances particularly  those  relating to the appointment of the DGP and AG.

For how long will this truce last is anybody’s guess. Meanwhile amidst all this  the former  CM captain Amarinder Singh is making us believe that he has met the union Home minister to discuss farm laws and national security. 

Amarinder for the time being has said that he is not joining the BJP but will leave the Congress. Thus there could be a three way split in the Congress in the future or just before the polls making it a cakewalk for the opposition particularly the Akali’s and the AAP who must be rejoicing at the unfolding developments in the  Congress. 

Amarinder could float his own party or join the BJP either way he is sure to cut into the Congress vote bank making it advantage opposition. Thus Sidhu’s dream of becoming the CM of Punjab could remain a dream and the Congress would have lost another State due the callousness and political immaturity of the Gandhi siblings.  

But Punjab is not the only headache for the Congress high command . Their former Goa CM has gone and joined the TMC further denting the image of the oldest national party and that of its leadership. Now its position as the main opposition party stands threatened with the TMC vying for that place.

However, it is the rumblings at the centre which are more worrying for the Congress with the likes of Kapil Sibal airing their concerns and calling for a CWC meeting at the earliest. His remarks of G-23 being not just a G-23 has earned the ire of the Congress workers who damaged his car and staged protests outside his house. Another of the G-23 members Gulab Nabi Azad has also written to party President Sonia Gandhi. 

But these things have happened in the past but yielded nothing. So will the party leadership sit up and take notice of these voices from senior party men or not is the big question.
However, if the leadership things that these voices are of dissent it could make matters worse. If the Congress continues to be run like a private limited company it could hit a new nadir in the future.
