*Have faith in the Gandhis, says Navjot Singh Sidhu after meeting Harish Rawat and K.C. Venugopal
Navjot Singh Sidhu, who announced his decision to remain president of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC), said he had complete trust in Congress president Sonia Gandhi, former party head Rahul Gandhi, and general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. He made these statements after meeting with Harish Rawat, the Punjab in-charge of the All India Congress Committee (AICC), and K.C. Venugopal, the general secretary (organisation) of the AICC, at the AICC headquarters in New Delhi. Mr. Rawat also stated that the cricketer-turned-politician will remain in charge of the PPCC, but that the party's structure in the state will be restructured. Mr. Sidhu's first meeting with the party's central leadership came after he surprised the party by announcing his resignation on Twitter in protest over appointments made by newly-appointed Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi.
