sidhu: Navjot Singh Sidhu reiterates his demand; shortlist for DGP done: CM Channi | India News – Times of India

CHANDIGARH: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu again demanded a replacement of Punjab’s police chief and advocate general on Sunday, saying otherwise the party will suffer a loss of face. Hours later, CM Charanjit Singh Channi reminded that the names of 10 police officers have already been sent to the Centre.

He asserted that a “good” officer will be appointed as the director general of police (DGP) after consulting Sidhu, ministers and MLAs once the state government receives three shortlisted names from the Centre. “Demand for Justice in Sacrilege cases and for arrest of main culprits behind the drug trade brought our Govt in 2017 & Due to his failure, People removed the last CM. Now, AG/DG appointments rub salt on wounds of victims, they must be replaced or we will have No face!!,” Sidhu tweeted.

The development comes three days after Sidhu and Channi held a meeting, following which it was decided to set up a coordination panel for prior consultation on all major decisions of the state government. Talking to reporters in Morinda on the sidelines of a government function, Channi said a regular DGP is yet to be appointed when he was asked about Sidhu’s demand for changing the state police chief and the advocate general. “I have told Sidhu sahab and he also knows that the names of the police officers who have completed 30 years in service have been sent to the Centre for the appointment of a DGP,” he said.

“The party work is being looked after by Sidhu sahab. We should both work in coordination and we are doing so. If anything is not being liked, then we have set up a coordination committee where we can discuss it,” he added.
