Punjab’s new CM Charanjit Singh Channi, two deputy CMs and state president Navjot Singh Sidhu arrived in Delhi on Tuesday. The four leaders traveled to Delhi on a chartered flight. In Delhi, these leaders will meet the central leadership of the party and will talk about the formation of the Council of Ministers in the state. Apart from this, he will also meet Harish Rawat, in-charge of Punjab. The Congress high command in Punjab is keeping a close watch on the changes in the bureaucracy after the formation of the new government. Even as DGP, several names have been suggested by the Charanjit Singh Channi government to the leadership and one of them is likely to be stamped by Rahul Gandhi.
Navjot Singh Sidhu shared a picture on Twitter with CM Charanjit Singh Channi and a Deputy CM. Sharing this picture while coming to Delhi, Navjot Singh Sidhu has written, ‘In line of duty’. CM Charanjit Singh Channi, Deputy CM Sukhjinder Randhawa and OP Soni took oath on Monday. Earlier on Saturday, Captain Amarinder Singh had resigned as the CM of the state. After that, after a long discussion, the Congress has decided to make Charanjit Singh Channi, who belongs to the Dalit community, as the CM.
Congress simplified caste equation in CM and Deputy CM
The Congress has rectified the caste equation with the faces of the Chief Minister and Deputy CM. Apart from this, it is now believed that even through the cabinet, the party will try to solve the regional and caste equations. Sukhjinder Randhawa is a Jat Sikh, while OP Soni is a Savarna Hindu. In this way, the Congress has done the work of serving the three major communities of the state as CM and Deputy CM. It is believed that now CM, Deputy CM and Navjot Singh Sidhu will discuss with the high command about possible ministers in Delhi. In this meeting, there can also be a discussion on keeping the leaders of Captain Amarinder Singh’s camp out of the Council of Ministers.

These leaders who took the front from the captain can get a place
According to Congress sources, those leaders who supported Sidhu during the confrontation with Captain Amarinder Singh may get a place in the Punjab cabinet. Amarinder Singh Raja, Madan Lal Jalalpur, Inderbir Singh Bolaria, Gurkeerat Singh Kotli, Pargat Singh and Sangat Singh Gilzian can be given chances. Pargat Singh is counted among the leaders close to Sidhu. He is currently the General Secretary of Punjab Congress. Apart from this, Gilzian is the working president of the state unit.
