It was Charanjit Singh Channi’s first house to house crusade subsequent to being named the boss pastoral face of the Congress for the 20 February Punjab races. Furthermore this was a point he never missed reminding the group. Yet, he likewise made it a highlight accentuate to individuals that he was not the same as his ancestor, Captain Amarinder Singh, and was picked by Congress VP Rahul Gandhi since he was an aam aadmi (average person) or individuals’ CM. While going with News18.com on Tuesday, Channi said, “Check out my parade. A large portion of the vehicles are left in the CM office in Chandigarh, I have just these trivial few. Yet, I have additionally shown that I can travel like the maharaja before me.”
The justification for why Channi was picked by the Gandhis was to refute the picture of Amarinder as being standoffish and not a group chief. Channi has the difficult undertaking of keeping his MLAs blissful and together. However, is that conceivable in a profoundly isolated party like the Congress? “Indeed, it is. We are largely together. I can’t turn into the CM in the event that my MLAs don’t win. We are winning, which is the reason a few MLAs are troubled, however we have contacted them,” said Channi.
Yet, shouldn’t something be said about the party’s state unit boss Navjot Singh Sidhu who is frustrated that he was not made the CM face? “Neither of us has any issues. We can and will cooperate. As I have been saying, I wouldn’t be pestered if any other person was named the CM face,” Channi said.
In private, most Congress pioneers concede that the Aam Aadmi Party is arising as their fundamental competitor and, when individuals need change, AAP could be another option. Obviously, AAP isn’t dazzled with the ‘poor’ label given to Channi. “It doesn’t matter at all to me what they say about me. (Arvind) Kejriwal has needed to apologize so often previously. He was sorry to (Nitin) Gadkari and others. He will one day need to apologize to me also. We are winning. What’s more there is no doubt of truly taking assistance of AAP or any other person as there will be no hung gathering,” Channi said.
AAP has handled the sprinter up of 2017, Charanjit Singh, inverse Channi. It desires to capitalize on the shame the main priest might be looking over the illicit sand mining argument against his nephew. The AAP applicant said, “We will win this time. Check out this CM voting demographic. There is such a lot of soil and no turn of events. Individuals need change and I will bring that change.”
Channi jeers and says the town will be faithful to him and, since he is the main clergyman now, he will bring many benefits of being a CM body electorate to Chamkaur Sahib. “I have been a MLA from here ordinarily. I know what I am doing. Individuals could never have casted a ballot me to control assuming this was the situation,” said the Congress chief. Be that as it may, he is challenging from two seats. Is this out of dread that he might lose, as Rahul Gandhi who needed to challenge from two Lok Sabha seats? “No chance. What’s more kindly don’t contrast me with Rahul Gandhi. I’m exceptionally certain I will win from both. I needed to show AAP that I am not terrified of them. I can take them on any place they are. Trust me, individuals will decide in favor of me. I’m the change. The change which you think AAP is offering is really being presented by me,” Channi said.
In any case, how might he take on AAP and his rivals while facing a forlorn conflict? “That might be your perspective, not mine. A few of us might have contrasts however that is the Congress party. I’m certain and sure we as a whole are together I address my MLAs day by day and it’s a collaboration. You will see the outcomes,” said the Congress chief.
Channi leaped off the vehicle and asked his security detail to avoid him. As a splitting shot, he said, “I don’t profess to be an everyday person, I am one. I need to meet individuals and I couldn’t care less with regards to security. Rab rakha (God is our deliverer). Individuals are my safeguard and they will guarantee I am protected and fine and that I win.” He then, at that point, grinned and blended with the group to take on a conflict that might choose his political future.
