Navjot Singh Sidhu is back ready after an arrangement was reached with Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Channi on Thursday over contentious appointments that had plunged the Congress into fresh turmoil ahead of the polls next year.
Navjot Sidhu, whose “emotional outburst” in the form of the shock resignation took the party by surprise on Tuesday, will be kept in the loop while picking a replacement for the state’s advocate general Amar Preet Singh Deol, sources said.
APS Deol was named on Monday after Atul Nanda left the post after the inelegant exit of Amarinder Singh as the Punjab Chief Minister.
A 10-part board has been shipped off the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) for the arrangement for another chief general of police (DGP) – another staying point.
The Congress has also agreed to set up a government-party panel ahead of the state polls due early next year
