Sangrur:President of the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) Capt Amarinder Singh is still hopeful that they can join hands with Sanjha morcha after humble refusal by the Sanjha Morcha leaders.
Capt Singh said that if invited, the Congress will join the district-level protests to be organised by the Sanjha Morcha on September 21 against the recent taxes in Punjab by the ruling SAD-BJP government.
He was accompanied by Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Sunil Jakhar, former minister Chiranji Lal Garg and Barnala MLA Kewal Singh Dhillon.
Amarinder said the Sanjha Morcha had not rejected his offer to participate in Congress dharnas on September 7. Morcha leaders had merely stated that at such a short notice, they could not prepare the cadres for participation in the Congress dharnas.
Capt Amarinder warned that if the SAD-BJP Government did not give up its “anti-people” polices, the PPCC could give a call for Punjab bandh.
