Congress ‘internal strife’ hindering taking party achievements to people: Sunil Jakhar

CHANDIGARH: Expressing concern over party cadre’s inability to fully leverage a major government decision like doubling of social security pension, former Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar on Monday said that “political wrangling” within the party was hampering this vital process of taking our landmark achievements amongst people ahead of 2022 elections.
Speaking at his native village Panjkosi, Jakhar said the increase in pensions from Rs 750 to Rs 1500 is a major decision by the state government to alleviate suffering of the needy. He however said that he had been concerned about party not being able to fully propagate the recent significant decision.
Last month, Jakhar was replaced by cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu as the PPCC chief and the latter has been at loggerheads with chief minister Amarinder Singh.
“We need to take these decisions to every household so that people could be more aware about these,” Jakhar said appealing to Congress leadership and party cadre that it is time to act unitedly to take government’s achievements to people on the ground so that party could win the next assembly elections and form the government in state again.
It is time we should tell people that the government chosen by them has doubled their pension amount while the during the ten years of SAD, the pension remained stagnated at Rs 250 and was only increased in the last year of Badal government’s tenure. Captain Amarinder Singh government has increased it three times in five years from Rs 500 to Rs 1500, Sunil Jakhar said.
He said, “Congress party president Sonia Gandhi, and party leader Rahul Gandhi have directed us to take Amarinder Singh government’s achievements to people. Due to “lack of coordination” in party, we are unable to take these achievements amongst public.” He appealed to the party leadership to be united and tell people about party’s achievements of four and half years urging them to not indulge in creating troubles. He said all must come together to fight polls unitedly. On the occasion, he also distributed enhanced pension certificates to beneficiaries.
