Amloh legislator reaches out to revolting Cong workers in Nabha
A day after Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s rally at Khanna, Amloh MLA Randeep Singh rushed to state cabinet minister Sadhu Singh Dharmsot’s constituency, Nabha, after a section of Congress workers revolted against Dharmsot . The revolting party workers had announced to support Punjab Democratic Alliance’s (PDA) candidate Dr Dharmvir Gandhi after being allegedly ignored by Dharmsot. Gandhi is contesting Lok Sabha elections against Congress candidate Preneet Kaur from Patiala.
Dharmsot had called it a handiwork of the Amloh MLA as he wanted to contest from the Patiala seat. He had said that he doesn’t see the revolting workers as Congress voters.
As per sources, Rahul Gandhi and Randeep Singh had a closed door meeting during Gandhi’s Khanna meeting on Monday. Randeep, however, refused to disclose what transpired in the meeting.
Randeep said he and his father Gurdarshan Singh’s names have been unnecessarily dragged into the issue and he has come to Nabha to convince the revolting party workers to campaign in support of Preneet Kaur. “My family has been ardent workers of Congress. We want Rahul Gandhi to be the next prime minister,” said Randeep Singh. “I had no role in the decision that was taken in the gathering of the Congress workers,” he added. He said he was reaching out to the workers and urging them to settle personal scores after elections, adding, “I will campaign in Nabha on Wednesday and participate in chief minister’s rally.”
