However the Amarinder told that the number of cabinet & deputy CM will be decided by party high command in his meeting with Rahul Gandhi today, but rumors are on full swing that Navjot Singh Sidhu would be sworn as Amarinder’s deputy. On the other hand cricketer turned politician Congress’ Amritsar East MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu have already cleared to the media on his future role in Punjab that “If I get a role, will leave everything for Punjab”.
