Sidhu met AICC general secretary (organisation) K C Venugopal and party general secretary incharge of Punjab affairs Harish Rawat at the party headquarters.

The meeting lasted around an hour after which Sidhu said any decision taken by the Gandhis would be in the interest of the party and Punjab.

"I have already expressed my concerns to the party high command and I am sure any decision that will be taken by the Congress president would be in the best interest of the party and Punjab," he told reporters after the meeting.

"I have full faith in the leadership," he said.

"Navjot Sidhu has been asked to work as Punjab Congress president and set up the organisation structure and strengthen it," said Rawat after the meeting.

Sidhu had recently resigned as Punjab Congress president but the decision to accept his resignation is yet to be taken.

Sources said a final decision on his resignation will come by Friday.

"The situation will be absolutely clear tomorrow. The orders are clear that he works with his full strength as Punjab Congress chief," Rawat said.

Asked if Sidhu's resignation would be accepted, he said, "Every decision is taken under a process and there are established practices."
