Rahul Gandhi loyalist Amarinder Singh Raja Warring appointed Punjab chief of Congress, Pratap Bajwa is CLP leader

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday appointed Amarinder Singh Brar (Raja Warring) as the party’s new Punjab leader in place of Navjot Singh Sidhu and Pratap Singh Bajwa, a former member of the Rajya Sabha, as the new party leader of the legislature. Sidhu was urged to tender his resignation after the party’s debacle in the recent Punjab election.

While Warring, who was Secretary of Transportation in the last Congressional administration, won the recent general election in Gidderbaha constituency, Bajwa was elected MLA from Qadian constituency.

The appointments bear the stamp of Rahul Gandhi who, a few years ago, appointed Raja Warring President of the Indian Youth Congress and Pratap Singh Bajwa Head of the Punjab Congress.

Warring inherits the difficult task of uniting various factions of Congress in Punjab. Sonia Gandhi has also appointed former Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu as Working President of the Punjab Congress and SC leader Raj Kumar Chabbewal as CLP Deputy Chair in the State Assembly.

“The Congress President has appointed Amarinder Singh Brar (Raja Warring) as President and Bharat Bhushan Ashu as Working President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee,” the party said in a statement.

“The Congress President has appointed Pratap Singh Bajwa as Chairman and Raj Kumar Chabbewal as Vice Chairman of the Punjab Congress Legislature Party in Punjab,” the statement added.

Following the party’s defeat in the five states that recently held elections, Sonia Gandhi had called on those state congress leaders to resign. She had also revised the Manipur and Goa units.
