When the meeting concluded, Navjot Singh Sidhu did not speak anything and tell what was being discussed. On the other hand, Sukhpal Khaira said that the meeting was not about choosing the PPCC Chief or anything else. But Centre’s “interference” in Punjab through Chandigarh, was discussed in the meeting.
