Besides Channi and Sidhu, the meeting was attended by senior Congress leader and central observer Harish Chaudhary, minister Pargat Singh and Punjab Congress working president Kuljit Nagra.
Navjot Singh Sidhu arrived from Patiala to Chandigarh on Thursday to meet Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi. The development comes on a day when former Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh officially announced that he will not return to Congress.
Ahead of the meeting yesterday, Sidhu had tweeted: “Chief Minister has invited me for talks will reciprocate by reaching Punjab Bhawan, Chandigarh at 3:00 PM today, he is welcome for any discussions !”
