Rift out in open at Bajwa meet

Factionalism in the Congress came out in the open on Thursday with Nawanshahr MLA Guriqbal Kaur Babli objecting to the presence of party district president at her residence, from where state Congress chief Partap Singh Bajwa was addressing mediapersons.

After Bajwa finished the press meet, Babli objected to the presence of Satbir Singh Palli Jhikki and told her supporters to ask Jhikki to leave. The situation was brought under control when Anandpur Sahib MP Ravneet Singh Bittu intervened. Following this, Jhikki left.

Sources said a rally was to be held in Nawanshahr but was shifted to a marriage palace owned by Jhikki at Banga. Babli reportedly was not in favour of the move. Jhikki and Babli had nursed differences since Assembly polls when the party ticket was given to Babli, to which Jhikki had objected.
