Navjot Singh Sidhu Back To Campaigning After Losing Out On CM Candidate Race

After losing out on the CM candidate, Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu said that chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi would implement his Punjab model. Recently, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi declared that Congress’ chief ministerial face for Punjab would be Charanjit Singh Channi in a rally in Ludhiana after taking party MLA’s into confidence. Since Captain Amarinder Singh’s exit, Mr Sidhu has been eyeing the CM seat. However, Congress feels that “people wanted someone who understands poverty, hunger, and fears of the poor” as their CM face,”

After an exit from the CM candidate race, Navjot Singh Sidhu is back to campaigning for CM Channi. While at a door-to-door campaign in the Mudhal village, Mr Sidhu said: “The main focus was to transform Punjab. It was never necessary to have a post for this purpose. It was the prerogative of the high command (Congress) to take a final call. Whatever was decided was acceptable. But fight over policies and accountability to bring change to the lives of the people, I will continue to ‘fight for truth and rights’ (haqatesachdi ladai). I intend to fight for people’s welfare. Anyone can take up any good point from it; I’ve no objection. I’ve already handed it over to the party, but Channi has the power to implement it,”
