Punjab Congress rivals Captain Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu on Friday put up a united face for the latter’s coronation as the state Congress chief.

This is the first time that the two leaders came face-to-face since their long-drawn and bitter tuf war ahead of the Punjab assembly elections next year.

Amarinder Singh had invited party leaders for tea on Friday morning from where they all went to Punjab Bhavan for the installation” of the new Congress team under Navjot Singh Sidhu, signalling truce.

In a apparent bid to bury the differences with the CM, Sidhu too in a separate letter requested Amarinder Singh to come for the installation ceremony and said he had “no personal agenda”.

“Thus as the eldest of our Punjab Congress family, I request you to please come and bless the new team,” wrote Sidhu.

The chief minister had opposed Sidhu’s appointment as the state Congress chief and had said he won’t meet him until the cricketer-turned-politician apologises for his “derogatory” tweets against him.
