The All India Congress Committee (AICC) has set up a high-powered committee to look into former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh's alleged non-cooperative attitude towards Punjab Congress Chief Rajinder Kaur Bhattal.
"Amarinder's absence from few important party functions and alleged non-cooperation with Bhattal is being viewed seriously by the AICC," AICC General Secretary Margaret Alwa on Friday told PTI over phone from Delhi.
The AICC has constituted a high-powered committee to look into the matter and was awaiting the report about the former chief minister's alleged non-cooperation towards Bhattal.
Even as Bhattal preferred not to say anything on the Amarinder issue, the former chief minister said that she was "too soft" with her agitations against Akalis.
Terming the on-going protests in the state by the party under the leadership of Bhattal as of "friendly nature", he said such protests could never change the mindset of Akalis.
"Bhattal lacks aggressive approach," he said, adding that he was set to take his fight to AICC again.
"I am heading for Delhi to check what action has been taken on my demand for change of PPCC leadership by May 31," he added.
"I will be active again once a recast is done in the PPCC," the former chief minister said, hoping that AICC Chairperson Sonia Gandhi will soon effect a change in Punjab unit of Congress.
