CHANDIGARH: All is not well in the Punjab Congress. The clamour for removing the party’s state chief, Partap Singh Bajwa, is getting louder, with some party workers showing black flags to him in Ludhiana on Wednesday.

Party leaders had ealier launched a signature campaign against him, asking the high command to sack him. “Bajwa has been a total failure for over one-and-a-half years now. He doesn’t have a single achievement to his credit,” a Congress leader said.

Congress workers led by former state secretary Akshay Bhanot stopped Bajwa’s car and raised slogans asking him to leave Ludhiana.

Bhanot said the protesters had nothing personal against Bajwa but wanted him to resign as “he hadn’t been able to lead the party, taking along everyone”.

“The very fact that we have been forced to take to the streets seeking his removal is testimony to his failure as the party chief,” Bhanot  said.

At a press conference, Congress leaders Palwinder Singh Taggar, Satwinder Singh Jawaddi and Baljinder Singh Bunty alleged that Bajwa was misleading the party high command.
