Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Waring on Sunday asked Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to focus better on governing Punjab than going on election excursions to Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. “The Punjab government appears to be in suspended animation,” Waring’s statement said, warning Mann to avoid imitating and blindly following the dictates of his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal. “Kejriwal Sahab can afford the luxury of a long absence from Delhi as he does not hold any portfolio and it (Delhi) is only a city-state and that too not a full-fledged one,” he said, noting, “Punjab is a complex a state with a complex set of problems and needs a full-time chief minister.” The Congress leader said that it is understandable to go on campaigns in other states from time to time, but it should not be done at the cost of one’s duty and responsibility.
