From Singh to Channi ; heres a look at how Punjab got its first Dalit-sikh Chief minister.

On Saturday, Punjab chief minister Amrinder Singh reported his concession following quite a while of a political tussle with his bete noise, Navjot Singh Sidhu. In 2017, Congress got back to power in Punjab with a greater barbarian part, however, before long saw infighting in the state unit. 


In 2019, Sidhu, who was brought into the Congress overlay by Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, left Captain's Cabinet following quite a while of quarreling. Singh had protested Sidhu's choice to go to the swearing-in function of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. He openly reprimanded Sidhu for his dubious embrace with Pakistan armed force boss Qamar Javed Bajwa.


However, after the Punjab and Haryana High Court suppressed the report demonstrated by an extraordinary examination group (SIT) on the Kotkapura terminating case, the defiance turned out in open.


The High Court judgment was a gigantic difficulty for the Singh-drove Congress government and afterward state party boss Sunil Jakhar and bureau serve Sukhjinder Randhawa even offered their acquiescence over the issue.


Sidhu, who was at that point vocal against Captain, got support from more MLAs inside the party, provoking Congress president Sonia Gandhi to establish a committee to investigate the quarreling. The board of trustees was going by the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge.


The committee presented a report on the issue and suggested keeping Singh in order however oblige Sidhu by giving him a job in the state unit and revamp the party structure. In July 2021, Congress appointed Sidhu as general of the Punjab corps even as Captain defied his elevation for the top center.


Sidhu continued targeting Captian over different issues. The fracture in the party continued getting more extensive as Singh, in the most natural-sounding way for him, felt embarrassed by how talks unfolded throughout the long term. He was discontent with Congress bringing MLAs twice in the beyond two months and assembling the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting in Chandigarh.


"I was humiliated three times by the Congress leadership in the past two months…they called the MLAs to Delhi twice and now convened CLP here in Chandigarh today”, Captain Amarinder announced at a press conference after fulfilling the concession to the chief on Saturday.


Chandigarh has been busy , with congressmen and women taking in opinions of MLA's for the face of Chief Minister. According to several reports its evident that Ambika soni had declined the offer for the post of CM. She said Punjab needs a sikh CM face. Charanjit  Singh Channi is the new CM of punjab , its first dalit-sikh CM ever .
