Ludhiana : Sidhu was finally tainted by his own team. He ran a lot, but as the Chief Minister of Punjab, he finally had to accept Channi as the head of Punjab after the coming elections. Congress has declared Charanjit Channi as the CM face for the Punjab Assembly elections. Rahul Gandhi announced this at the Dakha rally in Ludhiana. Due to this, Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Sidhu, who is continuously staking claim on the CM face, has suffered a major setback. Now everyone’s eyes are on what Sidhu says after this and which step he takes.
Announcing Channi’s name, Rahul Gandhi said that I did not decide the face of the CM. I asked the people of Punjab. Asked the candidates and workers, members of the working committee. He said that Punjab should choose its own leader. I can give only opinion, but Punjab’s opinion is more important. Punjab said that we want CM of poor house. Punjab needs such a person who understands hunger and poverty.
Earlier in the rally, CM Charanjit Channi said that with whomever CM face you choose, he will work day and night for the party. Earlier, praising Sidhu, Channi said that he is a very good orator. Channi said that from what mouth do those who killed 700 farmers come to seek votes in Punjab. BJP, Akali Dal and Aam Aadmi Party should answer this. Counting the work of 111 days, he said that he has seen me for 3 months, now look at the whole 5 years.
Channi said that he has been spotless till now. In his political career of 40 years, no one pointed a finger at him. Had I been wrong, Captain Amarinder Singh would have killed me. He followed me for 4 and a half years. Together we got him removed. I took good decisions, that’s why everyone is after him.
Charanjit Channi took a dig at drinking liquor and said that Captain Amarinder Singh’s shop used to close at 4 o’clock. Bhagwant Mann’s shop closes at 6 pm. Channi attacked Bhagwant Mann a lot for drinking alcohol. Channi said that against Bhagwant Mann, an MP also complained in Parliament that he smells of alcohol.
Sidhu said that if I get the power to take decisions, then I will eliminate the mafia from Punjab. If I do not make the CM face, then we will support shoulder to shoulder with the one who will be made. However, during this time Sidhu also warned not to ignore the high command by calling himself an Arabian horse.
It is being said that before this, the screw was stuck in the Congress regarding the CM face. No consensus could be reached on the name of either Charanjit Channi and Navjot Sidhu. Rahul Gandhi was supposed to announce it at 2 am. He had reached Ludhiana around 12 o’clock. After this, for about two hours, he kept celebrating both at the hotel in Ludhiana. Due to which the rally was also delayed by about one and a half hours.
