Punjab Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, days after reaching a truce of sorts with Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, has drawn up a 13-point agenda on governance - "priority areas" and promises made before 2017 polls he said "the state government must deliver upon". Mr Sidhu's suggestions, sent in a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, range from arrest in drugs cases, creation of agricultural infrastructure and laws to control "cable mafia".

As per news report of NDTV, He also asked Mrs Gandhi that the party direct the state government to act on those lines as a "last damage control measure" - a request that might reopen his rift with the Chief Minister. Mr Sidhu shared on Twitter the letter written on October 15 -- a day after he met Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and K C Venugopal and withdrew his resignation as Punjab Congress president. However, he did not put his designation as state Congress chief in the letter.
