Chandigarh, October 13

In an apparent bid to quell speculations about the Congress likely to accept the resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu as Pradesh Congress Committee chief, AICC general secretary (organisation) KC Venugopal has called the cricketer-turned-politician to Delhi on October 14 for discussion on organisational matters pertaining to the state party unit.

Sharing the information on Twitter this evening, Punjab affairs in-charge Harish Rawat said Sidhu would be meeting Venugopal and him for a discussion on Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee organisational matters at the former’s office in New Delhi. The meeting comes ahead of the CWC meeting on October 16.

Sources said the party brass, upset over Sidhu’s sudden move to resign, is likely to tell him to concentrate on forming and strengthening the state body unit.
