A day after senior Congress leader Jagmeet Singh Brar said he would not reply to the show-cause notice issued by Punjab Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa over certain utterances in the media, Bajwa categorically said Brar “will face the music” if he failed to file a reply by August 5.

Brar had reportedly suggested that party president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi should take a break for two years for the party to be rejuvenated. He had virtually echoed the words of Birender Singh, the Haryana leader who has been suspended from the Congress Working Committee and looks set to join the BJP.

“Maybe, Brar has also made up his mind to join another party, as rumoured, thus he is avoiding replying,” Bajwa told HT, adding that it was the Congress high command which had asked Brar to explain his irresponsible conduct through the state unit. Bajwa said the “outbursts” by Brar, followed by his statement that he won’t reply to the notice, had indicated that he had “something in mind”. “There are several rumours that he may switch parties, and he is fuelling that by not answering,” he added.

Brar has opposed Bajwa being the state unit chief, and he often criticises MP and former CM Capt Amarinder Singh, too, from time to time. On Brar’s claim that he had been misquoted, Bajwa said, “Well, if that’s the case, the notice has given him an opportunity to make it clear that he never made such statements.”

He said that instead of citing rules and regulations, Brar must reply to the notice issued as per directions of the party general secretary in-charge for Punjab affairs, Shakeel Ahmad. If Brar failed to meet the reply deadline of August 5, Bajwa said, “he should get ready to face the music, as stern action will be taken against him as per party rules”.
