State must come back to real issues: Punjab Congress chief Sidhu

Chandigarh/IBNS: Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday said the state must "come back" to its real issues that matter to every Punjabi and concerns the future generations.

"Punjab must come back to its real issues that concern every Punjabi and our future generations.... How will we counter the financial emergency that stares upon us? I will stick to the real issues and not let them take a back seat!" Sidhu tweeted.

Sidhu's averment came amid a war of words between several Punjab Congress leaders and former Punjab Chief Minister Amrinder Singh over his friendship with Pakistani journalist  Aroosa Alam.

Recently Sidhu met senior Congress leaders K C Venugopal and Harish Rawat in Delhi and raised his concerns over the 18-point agenda, including action against those guilty in the 2015 sacrilege cases and the drugs mafia.

 He had also raised issues of illegal mining of sand and its transport.

In his tweet, Sidhu asserted that there were only two choices -- “irreparable damage and the last chance for damage control”.

“The choice is clear between irreparable damage and the last chance for damage control.... Who will bring back state's resources to the state's coffers, instead of them going to private pockets?? Who will lead the initiative for resurrection our great state to prosperity," he tweeted.

"Let the mist clear, reality shine like the sun upon the roadmap for revival of Punjab, shunning those who protect the selfish vested interests and focus only on the path that will lead to Jittega Punjab, Jittegi Punjabiyat and Jittega Har Punjabi (triumph of Punjab, Punjabiyat and Punjabis)!” read his third tweet on Sunday.

Sidhu has insisted that his list of agenda should be the part of Congress manifesto for the 2022 assembly elections.
