On the question of internal discord in Punjab Congress, Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu has given a big statement today. In fact, the current CM Charanjit Singh Channi has been declared as the CM face by the Congress high command for the assembly elections in Punjab, whereas before this, there was a lot of discussion in the political corridors about making Navjot Singh Sidhu as the CM face.
In such a situation, on the issue of internal discord in Congress, Navjot Singh Sidhu has made it clear today that there is no such thing. Rahul Gandhi’s decision is acceptable to all. He said, “Where is the infighting in Congress? Rahul Gandhi has given the verdict and we all have welcomed it. No one has any problem with the decision of the high command.
Let us tell you that earlier, Sidhu had questioned the party high command and said that the people at the top want a “weak” CM” who will follow what he says. Sidhu had said that, “It is in the hands of the CM to make the state new. If Punjab has to be made new, it is in the hands of the CM. The people sitting above want a weak CM who dances at his behest.”
Polling in Punjab to be held on February 20
Polling is to be held in one phase for 117 assembly seats in Punjab. On February 20, voters will vote for the candidate of their choice. At the same time, the results will be declared after counting on March 10.
It is worth noting that Rahul Gandhi, who is campaigning for his return to power in Punjab, had announced that the current Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi would be the face of the Congress’s CM post in the state.
