Warring Congress leaders share stage at Rahul's rally

Sangrur (Punjab), Oct 10 : Warring leaders of the Congress' Punjab unit shared a platform Thursday at a public rally addressed by the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi near this Punjab town.

Former chief ministers Amarinder Singh and Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, state Congress president Pratap Singh Bajwa, Leader of Opposition Sunil Kumar Jakhar and former MP Jagmeet Singh Brar and others were present at the rally.

The event, at this town, 130 km from Chandigarh, was preceded by some controversy as Amarinder Singh, reportedly unhappy at his name not being there in the list of dignitaries to share the stage with Gandhi, tried to excuse himself, saying that he had a court case to attend.

The game of upmanship between Amarinder Singh and Bajwa, who succeeded him as the state Congress chief, has been going on for the last few months.
