Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Tuesday said there is no difference between him andÂ Navjot Singh Sidhu, after the latter resigned from party’s state unit chief, in a letter addressed to party supremo Sonia Gandhi.
Addressing a presser, Charanjit Singh Channi said, “I have my confidence in Sidhu, if needed I shall call him… but there is no difference. How can he be angry with me…”
The political situation in the Punjab Congress on Tuesday once again took a dramatic turn after Sidhu resigned from the post.
The development has come after Punjab Congress appointed Charanjit Singh Channi as chief minister a few days ago.
Speculations were doing the rounds that after Captain Amarinder Singh’s exist as Punjab Chief Minister, the Congress would appoint Sidhu as CM, but it didn’t happen. Instead, Dalit-Sikh leader Charanjit Singh Channi was given the top post and it seems this move by the party made Sidhu angry, therefore, he resigned from the post.
