Who will be the new CM of Punjab after the resignation of Captain Amarinder Singh? Congress’s churning is going on regarding this. According to the information so far, Ambika Soni’s name was running in the forefront as a new face. Ambika Soni is a Rajya Sabha MP from Punjab. However, now news is coming that he has turned down this offer due to health reasons. At the same time, according to sources, Navjot Sidhu has also staked claim to make him the CM. Because of which the screw is more stuck. Apart from him, former head Sunil Jakhar is also in the race.
After this, the mobilization of MLAs has started in favor of Sidhu and Jakhar. Some leaders have reached Jakhar’s house, while some MLAs have started meeting at the house of Sukhjinder Randhawa, a close aide of Sidhu.
At the same time, if Jakhar’s name is stamped, then after 55 years Punjab will get the first Hindu CM. Meanwhile, the big news is that the Punjab Congress Legislature Party meeting to be held at 11 am has been postponed. Now the Congress high command will announce it directly.
Meanwhile, the meeting of Congress leaders with Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Rawat, Central Observer Ajay Maken and Harish Chaudhary is going on in a hotel in Chandigarh. Overall, till now there seems to be no consensus among the MLAs of Punjab Congress.
Punjab Congress organization general secretary and MLA Pargat Singh, a close aide of Sidhu, said the legislature party has given the right to choose a new leader to Sonia Gandhi. Now the decision will be taken from there. Earlier this decision was to be taken in the meeting of the legislature party on Saturday night itself. That is why the proposal was immediately sent by e-mail, giving the right to choose a new face to Sonia Gandhi. After which former Congress chief Sunil Jakhar was considered almost certain to become the CM. However, suddenly due to Punjab being a Sikh state, the demand for a Sikh face has also arisen, after which the Congress is caught in the circle of Hindu and Sikh faces.
Congress’s churning on the formula of two deputy CMs
The one CM and two deputy CM formulas are now being considered within the Congress, which is caught in the circle of Sikh and Hindu faces. If a Hindu face is made the CM, then a Jat Sikh and a Dalit can be made the Deputy CM. If a Sikh face is made the CM, then a Hindu and a Dalit leader can be made the Deputy CM. Through this formula, Congress can break the election promise of making a Hindu and a Dalit of the opponents and especially the Akali Dal as Deputy CM. However, the final seal will be taken only in the meeting of the legislature party.High command was on Jakhar, MLA agreed with Sidhu
The Congress high command is in favor of making Sunil Jakhar the chief minister. The message has been sent to them. After which Jakhar has also tweeted singing the praises of Rahul Gandhi. Observers from Delhi were also sent saying the same thing. However, after the CLP meeting, the names of Sukhjinder Randhawa and Navjot Sidhu also surfaced as Sikh faces. Most of the MLAs seemed to agree on Sidhu’s name, after which the announcement of the name was postponed late on Saturday night.
Congress engaged in the political mathematics of Hindu-Sikh
The Hindu-Sikh maths of the Congress in Punjab had gone awry after Sidhu was made the head. On the chair of the CM and the party head, both the Jats became Sikh faces. In view of this, there is a churning going on now that the same balance should be restored. That’s why the Congress high command wants to make a Hindu CM in Punjab, but the MLAs are not agreeing to it.
Hindu Deputy CM of opponents break the stakes
In the midst of this political upheaval of the Congress, the big target is to thwart the bets of the Hindu Deputy CM of the opposition Akali Dal. If Congress makes a Hindu Chief Minister, then it will be easy to garner Hindu vote bank in the elections. This vote bank also remains a big strength of Congress in elections. Especially at a time when Akali Dal has broken ties with BJP.
