While the factions led by the former CM Captain Amarinder Singh and Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Partap Singh Bajwa have locked horns over the poll debacle in Punjab, the senior most PPCC vice- president Brahm Mohindra has advised them to call truce and show solidarity with the high command.

"The Congress is witnessing its worst-ever defeat. It's not a time for blame game, but it's time to get united. All Congress leaders should keep the local issues aside and should express their solidarity with AICC president Sonia Gandhi," said Brahm Mohindra.

However, Mohindra admitted that in Punjab the Congressmen fail to capitalize on the anti-incumbency factor against the ruling SAD-BJP alliance. "The Congress failed to propagate the UPA achievements and highlight the misrule of Akalis, which led to the rise of the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab," he said.

Mohindra said that at this juncture when the party had scored its lowest tally, Congressmen should put extra effort to solve the issue.

"I also advice Captain Amarinder Singh to show leadership and ask his group members to call an immediate truce and work for the betterment of the party by reaching out to the masses," he added.

He asked the Congress leaders to formulate a programme at the state- level to expose the Akali Dal over the issues of sand mafia and police misrule.
