Charanjit Singh Channi becomes new CM of Punjab | All you need to know

After witnessing massive turmoil in the Punjab Congress, Charanjit Singh Channi has become the new Chief Minister of Punjab. The convenor of Punjab Congress Harish Rawat tweeted that it gives him immense pleasure to announce that Charanjit Singh Channi has been unanimously elected as the new Congress Legislative Party of Punjab.

Charanjit Singh is a Congress MLA from Chamkaur constituency and was a cabinet minister in Amarinder Singh’s government. He was leading the ministry of Technical Educational and Industrial Training.

Charanjit Singh belongs from ‘Ramdasia Sikh Community’ and is the first Dalit Chief Minister of Punjab. Charanjit Singh was chosen the leader of Congress Legislative Party by the Congress MLAs.

Channi was among the leaders who had raised a banner of revolt against Amarinder Singh.

Earlier in the day, the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee had finalised the name of Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa as Punjab’s new CM. After the resignation of Captain Amarinder Singh as Punjab CM, the names of Navjot Singh Sidhu, Sunil Jakhar, the PCC chief Pratap Bajwa, Congress Rajya Sabha MP Ambika Soni, Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria and Tript Rajinder Bajwa were rounding for the top post in Punjab.

Just four months ahead of the assembly polls in Punjab, Amarinder Singh on Saturday stepped down as the Punjab chief minister citing humiliation after a section of MLAs sought a change in state leadership for the third time in recent months.

Singh’s resignation came after a prolonged tiff with newly appointed Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.
