Navjot Singh Sidhu’s choice DS Patwalia has been appointed as Punjab’s top public prosecutor after weeks of high drama in the state Congress chief’s victory ahead of next year’s elections.
Earlier this month, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi had struck a deal with Mr Sidhu by accepting the resignation of APS Deol as the Advocate General of Punjab.
Mr Deol’s appointment to the post became a major conflict point between the chief minister and Mr Sidhu, plunging the ruling party into further trouble.
After resigning from the post of Punjab Congress chief, Navjot Singh Sidhu withdrew his resignation, but had warned his party that he would not take over again until Mr. Deol was removed. .
