The decision was announced after Rawat had insisted the party high-command to relieve him as general secretary in-charge for Punjab, in view of the upcoming assembly elections in Uttarakhand. Rawat has played a key role in bringing in Navjot Singh Sidhu as the Punjab Congress chief, despite strong opposition from then chief minister Amarinder Singh. He later played a key role in replacing Amarinder Singh with Charanjit Singh Channi as chief minister of Punjab when Amarinder Singh resigned, after raising serious accusations towards the party leaders.
