Chandigarh, April 2
A meeting of the Core Committee of the SAD has been summoned to discuss important issues facing the state at Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s residence tomorrow.

The committee will meet at 2 pm while a state Cabinet meeting has been summoned at 10 am. Speculation is rife that the committee meeting, held in an informal manner, will also discuss the issue of the elevation of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal as Chief Minister.
Sources close to the Badal family denied the meeting had been summoned to discuss Sukhbir’s elevation, saying, “There is nothing on the agenda, but if someone brings up the issue, it is for the Chief Minister to respond”.
Further, the sources said that after the Chief Minister’s recent ill-health, leaders wanted to come to wish him speedy recovery. “The Chief Minister called a Core Committee meeting so that he could meet everybody”.
The Core Committee comprises important leaders of the SAD, the Chief Minister, the Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, Balwinder Singh Bhunder, Tota Singh, Prem Singh Chandumajra, Maheshinder Singh Grewal and Sewa Singh Sekwan.
Rumours about the Core Committee having been summoned to discuss Sukhbir’s elevation could stem from the fact that Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa had made a statement yesterday saying, “No one is opposed to the idea of elevating Sukhbir as Chief Minister, but the issue should be brought before the Core Committee and implemented later”.
Sources in the SAD said the Core Committee would broadly discuss the issue of the coming SGPC elections, the procurement of wheat, the de-bundling of the Punjab State Electricity Board, the power situation, the retirement age of employees and any feedback on governance and administration.
The Chief Minister has referred to his failing health on the floor of the Vidhan Sabha.
