Amid talk of replacement of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee chief Partap Singh Bajwa,several senior state leaders, including his known detractor and former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, met party chief Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday.

Another former Chief Minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal and Sanaur MLA Lal Singh, whose name is doing the rounds as the next PCC chief, also met Gandhi.

Reports from Punjab had it that the roller-coaster tenure of Bajwa as PCC chief could soon be over with the party set to replace him with Lal Singh, an associate of Amarinder Singh.

Amarinder Singh has been publicly questioning Bajwaj's leadership and had suggested in March 2014 that Lal Singh be made the party's working president. The party's dismal performance in recent municipal elections has given more ammunition to Bajwa's critics.
