Tensions between Amrinder Singh, chief minister of Punjab and Navjot Singh Sidhu continue to rise. Last year, in Hyderabad Sidhu, commented on Amrinder Singh that Rahul Gandhi is his captain; also he is the Captain of the Captain Amrinder Singh. Sidhu has also been criticized by Amrinder Singh for exploiting the prospects of Congress with his comments against him.
Amrinder Singh also disapproved of Navjot Singh Sidhu hugging the Army Cheif of Pakistan, during his visit there.
Last month, when he met Rahul Gandhi, the president of Congress, along with Priyanka Gandhi, he handed over the letter to him.
Earlier also he had brought the point of leaving the politics if Rahul Gandhi loses the election from Amethi. He waited from a month for the reconciliation.
