The Congress has been battling leadership issues in Punjab for months now.

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu was declared the Punjab Congress chief in July after weeks of infighting and in face of strong opposition by Captain Amarinder Singh. Sidhu has been a vehement critic of the state government and took pot shots at Singh. Sidhu kept pulling up the government for not fulfilling the pre-poll promises.
