The Congress has decided to act tough against rebels in the party with polls up- coming in five states. It will take a decision soon to either expel or suspend them based on internal reports.

The party is facing internal rifts in almost all the states. From Punjab to Uttarakhand the party has been closely watching leaders who have been trying to damage the party’s prospects. Sources have not revealed the identities but say that the names of many MLAs and ex MLAs are on the list.

The party wants to put its house in order and has taken note of the recent statements of Punjab party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu and a senior leader of the party in Uttarakhand.

Reportedly, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and state party president Navjot Singh Sidhu are both pushing to be named the Chief Ministerial candidate.

The Congress, so far, has not named any one as the Chief Ministerial face for the upcoming Assembly elections as the party considers that this leads to infighting and internal rift.

But Sidhu on Tuesday said it is the people who will choose the next Chief Minister of the state and not the high command.
