Congress in 'tension' with Amarinder Singh's new party; Punjab CM Channi visited Delhi and met Rahul Gandhi

 CM Charanjit Singh Channi met former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday. During this, Channi discussed the elections in Punjab and the latest announcement of Amarinder Singh

The Congress in Punjab is going through a very difficult phase at this time. After the change from the organization to the government, where the Congress is fearing a break in the party, on the other hand, the concern of the ruling party has increased due to the formation of a separate party by former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.

 This is the reason why the current Chief Minister of Punjab Charanjit Singh Channi reached Delhi on Thursday and met the party high command. Channi met former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday. During this, Charanjit Singh Channi discussed about the elections in Punjab and the latest announcement of Capt.

 

The meeting took place at Rahul Gandhi's residence in Delhi, which lasted for about two hours. KC Venugopal and Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Chaudhary were also present in this meeting. According to sources, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Thursday discussed with Rahul Gandhi the party's prospects in the next year's elections, former CM Captain Amarinder Singh's latest announcement, government's plans, sacrilege issue and the new BSF mandate amendment.

Sources said that in the meeting, Channi discussed the political situation in the state including his rift with state party president Navjot Singh Sidhu. He also apprised Rahul Gandhi of the 'pro-people' measures taken by the state government. This meeting of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi with Rahul Gandhi is considered important ahead of next year's assembly elections in Punjab.



It is noteworthy that Captain Amarinder Singh recently announced that he is forming his own political party and is contesting all the 117 seats in the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections. At the same time, Amarinder Singh had said that some Congress leaders were in touch with him. Hence, there are apprehensions that after Amarinder Singh quits the Congress, some MLAs may switch sides before the elections.
