"No meeting with Sidhu (Navjot Singh Sidhu)", Rahul Gandhi said, according to news agency ANI, as he left from his residence for 10 Janpath, party's president Sonia Gandhi's residence, this evening.
The cricketer-turned-politician had sought a meeting with the Gandhis to press for his demands amid the infighting in Punjab Congress.
Earlier this month, a three-member panel set up by party's interim chief Sonia Gandhi to resolve infighting had recommended that Amarinder Singh is fit to be the leader of the party in the state but Sidhu should also be given a key role.
