Chandigarh, July 8 (IANS) Former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh Tuesday hinted at a major shuffle in the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) and said a new chief to the state unit may be announced “in a day or two”. Talking to media persons here, Singh said the party high command, under the supervision of All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Sonia Gandhi, will announce changes in the party soon.

At present Rajinder Kaur Bhattal heads the PPCC and has a very public spat with Singh.

Bhattal told party workers to stay away from Singh during his vigilance bureau questioning Sunday as the case pertains to his personal wealth and the party has nothing to do with it.

Despite the order, many party activists were present to reiterate their support to Singh outside Patiala Circuit House.
