As per reports names of MLA Lal Singh, former Central minister Manish Tiwari and Ludhaina MP Ravneet Bittu were also being considered by the party high command for the post of party’s state chief, but keeping in view that party has massive internal divisions, the Central leadership has reportedly decided to bring in an experienced leader. Names of Ambika Soni and MLA Jakhar continue to be on top of the list with strong endorsement from Amarinder for both of them. However, there are reports that Ambika Soni has not been keen on taking the responsibility so far.
