Amarinder warns Cong members against going public



Chandigarh: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Amarinder Singh on Sunday warned party members of disciplinary action if they go public on internal issues of the organisation.

"Going public and going to the media instead of coming to the party forum amounts to serious indiscipline which will be seriously dealt with", he warned.

Reacting to media reports, Amarinder said, the party High Command has taken serious notice of this. He warned that if it did not stop, strong action will be initiated against those indulging in indiscipline.

The former Chief Minister was reacting to reports that there is rising discontent among a number of Congress MLAs who have been left out from the list of district presidents and office bearers of the party released earlier this week.

"If anyone has any grievance, he/she is at liberty to take this matter up with me, with (senior leader) Gulchain Singh Charak or the Congress President herself", he said, while pointing out, he had already written to the Party President Sonia Gandhi about accommodating more deserving people in the PCC.

"When I have already taken up the issue with the Congress President there is no need for anyone to rush to the media or attempt to make political capital of it and serve their personal interest at the cost of the party", he said, according to a party release here.

Amarinder Singh maintained the Congress was a democratic party and everybody was welcome to meet and take up issues with him or the High Command.
