The Congress hoped to put an end to the political tussle after getting a new Sardar in Punjab, but the remarks of Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat created a new controversy. Surrounded by Rawat's remarks, Congress on Monday said Prime Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and Congress President Navjot Sidhu would be the party's face in the Punjab elections. In fact, Harish Rawat had said Sidhu would be the face of Congress in the Punjab election. Congress spokeswoman Randeep Surjewala said, "Congress will contest the next general election under the leadership of Channi and Sidhu.

Navjot Singh Sidhu was the face of the future

He accused the BJP, Akali Dal, BSP, and Aam Aadmi Party of insulting a Dalit Chief Minister. The leadership decision to elect Charanjit Singh Channi as chief minister, especially the role of Rahul Gandhi, was seen as a step forward, but Rawat's statement answered otherwise.

After Rawat's statement that Navjot Singh Sidhu was the future king, leaders from Punjab to Delhi should step down to clarify. BSP leaders Mayawati, Aam Aadmi Party, and BJP also added to the difficulty by questioning Congress's decision to call Channi a disgruntled CM in Rawat's statement. Here, Rawat also criticized his statement to the media.

Why does Mayawati refuse when Dalit's son becomes a CM?

According to a statement issued by Mayawati and opponents about Channi, Congress said why is there pain in the stomach of the opposition party after making the Dalit CM. Congress has made history, for the first time in Punjab, the Dalit youth, inferior youth has been made Chief Minister. Why does Mayawati argue that Dalit's son was made a CM?

Channi will also be the face of Congress in the upcoming elections. He should have commended her. The Dalit protest is not in line with this. Congress has challenged BSP-Akali Dal, declaring Dalit a nominee, only then will their credibility be demonstrated.

Rawat's wish to leave Punjab's charge

Congress leadership will soon fulfill the demand of Punjab incumbent Harish Rawat to step down. After all, it is still good in Punjab, Rawat should be exempted from the Uttarakhand election but the leadership is also now beginning to feel that the recent speeches of Harish Rawat as the incumbent have complex issues in the Punjab that have intensified the fire.

The leadership was expecting applause and a political message about Channi's decision, but Rawat's statement undermined the party's election strategy and important decision.
