Punjab Congress Committee vice president OP Soni on Sunday distanced himself from a statement released by a section of Congress leaders against party MP Amarinder Singh claiming that he and many others whose names were mentioned in the release were kept in the dark.
Infighting in Punjab Congress flared up on Saturday with senior leader Amarinder Singh accusing Partap Singh Bajwa of sabotaging his Lok Sabha election campaign in Amritsar, a charge rubbished by the PCC chief as "utter lies".
Hours after his acquittal in a
corruption case, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal
today decided to withdraw "as goodwill gesture" two defamation
suits filed by him against his predecessor Amarinder Singh.
