Rebel Punjab Congress leaders say headed for Delhi, seek to meet Sonia.

THE PUNJAB Congress leaders who called on state party in-charge Harish Rawat in Dehradun Wednesday claimed they had a “very fruitful” three-hour-long meeting with him and that they had informed him about the “quid pro quo of Amarinder Singh with the Akalis” and that the party would lose the elections if he continued as Chief Minister.

Asked about Rawat’s statement reported by the Congress would fight the elections under Amarinder, a source said, “Kuchch majboorian rahin hongi (He must have had some compulsions).” A leader close to the rebel camp added, “Rawat Sahib heard them out very patiently. He told them that the change in CM is in the offing. It is just a matter of time.” The rebel leaders will reportedly seek an appointment with AICC chief Sonia Gandhi next, and are planning to reach Delhi Thursday.
