Punjab CM firm on his stance, won't meet Navjot Singh Sidhu unless he 'publicly apologises'

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh would not meet the newly-appointed Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu unless the latter “publicly apologises” for his “derogatory social media remarks” against Singh, said Raveen Thukral, media advisor to the Chief Minister, on Tuesday.

“Reports of Navjot Singh Sidhu seeking time to meet Captain Amarinder Singh are totally false. No time has been sought whatsoever. No change in stance… CM won’t meet Navjot Singh Sidhu till he publicly apologises for his personally derogatory social media attacks against him,” said Raveen Thukral in a tweet.
