It seems that Congress Party’s fondness for Navjot Singh Sidhu is decreasing whereas party’s fondness for the new Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi is increasing. Sidhu, after his resignation, had told that he’ll withdraw his resignation only if the party agrees over all his demands and conditions, on which Congress Party hasn’t commented yet. Observing Sidhu’s attitude, the high command of Congress also suspended Harish Rawat’s visit to Chandigarh, wherein he was going to pacify Sidhu.Channi's support for farmers
The newly appointed Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has been actively participating in the State’s politics, which could be witnessed through his strict attitude while choosing his Cabinet Ministers and his opposition to the three Farm Laws. Bharat Bandh, called by the farmers on Monday, also received full support of Channi’s government. Along with this, the family members of the farmers, who lost their lives during the Farmers Protest, were bestowed with appointment letters for government jobs. Reportedly, the CM has asked his Cabinet Ministers to hand over the appointment letters,to the family members of deceased farmers, by visiting their homes themselves. Channi said that around 195 such appointment letters are ready and the members will receive them in a week. When he was appointed the CM, he has said that he’ll fulfill all the promises that were made and it seems he’s already fulfilling them.Channi vs Sidhu
CM Charanjit Singh Channi’s strict and fearless attitude doesn’t seem like getting accepted by Navjot Singh Sidhu. Reportedly, the two leaders didn’t have agreement on the leaders to be included in the Cabinet. But due to close association of Charanjit Singh Channi and Rahul Gandhi, Sidhu wasn’t called in the meeting of Cabinet selection.
Reportedly Navjot Singh Sidhu had an eye over the post of Chief Minister, which now seems getting slipped from his hands due to some of the recent decisions taken by Channi. As per the reports, it was being said that Channi was appointed as the Chief Minister just till the upcoming assembly elections, due to caste reasons, but the decisions taken by him seems like strengthening his position in the state’s politics. If despite of the crisis taking place in Congress Party in Punjab, the party manages to win elections, its credit will definitely be given to CM Charanjit Singh Channi.
