Chandigarh, September 20, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Senior Leader Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt), MLA and former Finance Minister, S. Parminder Singh Dhindsa warmly congratulated the new Chief Minister of Punjab, Sh. Charanjit Singh Channi was appointed by Congress.
While, S. Dhindsa slammed Congress, saying that it is unfortunate that even before Charanjit Singh Channi had been sworn in, the Congress High Command had put shackles on his feet.
He said that without looking at the work and performance of Charanjit Singh Channi, Harish Rawat’s announcement of Navjot Singh Sidhu as the Chief Minister in the forthcoming Assembly elections has made it clear that the Congress had appointed Charanjit Singh Channi as the new Chief Minister only to woo Dalit voters. It is a political card played to get the votes of the community, added S. Dhindsa.
He said that who would be the next Chief Minister of Punjab would be decided by the people of Punjab in the next assembly elections. People of the State have no confidence in the ability of the newly appointed Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and he is being used only to win the votes of the Dalit community, said S. Dhindsa.
S. Parminder Singh Dhindsa said that Charanjit Singh Channi has not even started his work yet and without looking at his performance the Congress party has decided his future and presented the face of Navjot Singh Sidhu as the Chief Minister in the next elections.
What is being done is blatant dishonesty with the Dalit community. Dalit society needs to be aware of this, asserted S. Dhindsa.
He said that with such awkward moves being hatched by the Congress how could Charanjit Singh Channi thinks of the welfare of the state when he was well aware that he had been appointed as the Chief Minister only for a short period.
He said that Congress wanted to use Dalits as its vote bank by appointing Dalit Chief Minister for a few months. Attempts are being made to save the lost credibility of the Congress in the state but the people of Punjab will never allow the awkward mischief of the Congress party to succeed, said S. Dhindsa.
S. Dhindsa said that Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt) believes that no matter what community or class the Chief Minister belongs to if he does a better job, he should be given full opportunity to lead the party and the government. But by not doing so, the Congress party has shown its bad and opportunistic thinking.
