Channi,Sidhu arrive in Delhi

Charanjit Singh Channi has reached Delhi to meet Congress leaders. He was accompanied by Punjab Pradesh Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu and Deputy Chief Minister. All of them reached Delhi in a private jet to meet the Congress high command.  

It is being told that in Delhi, Charanjit Singh and other leaders will meet the Congress leaders and discuss the 18-point agenda as well as the new cabinet is also going to be discussed in this meeting. Before taking off for Delhi, Navjot Singh Sidhu has shared a picture from his Twitter handle in which he is seen standing outside the private jet with the Chief Minister.

Sources said that this team, which came from Punjab, will meet with Congress General Secretary Harish Rawat in Delhi. Rawat is in charge of Congress's Punjab affairs.  Channi, Randhawa and another Deputy Chief Minister OP Soni took the oath of office and secrecy on Monday. Two days before this, the then Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh had resigned on Saturday.  Assembly elections are going to be held in the state after about four and a half months.

After much deliberation and consultation, Congress elected Channi as the leader of the legislature party in Punjab.  Along with this, Randhawa and Soni were elected for the post of Deputy Chief Minister.  Both are Jats, Sikhs and Hindus respectively.  Sources said that new faces can be included in the cabinet, the names of these candidates will be discussed in the meeting of Delhi.

There are indications that leaders who stand by Sidhu in the power struggle with the Captain may find a place in the cabinet. The names of Amarinder Singh Raja Waring, Madan Lal Jalalpur, Inderbir Singh Bolaria, Gurkeerat Singh Kotli, Pargat Singh and Sangat Singh Gilzian are in the discussion among those to be included in the cabinet.

Pargat Singh is believed to be close to Sidhu, who is currently the general secretary of the Punjab Congress and Gilzian is the working president of the party's state unit.  There is speculation that Captain's confidante Gurmeet Singh Sodhi and Sadhu Singh Dharamsot may continue in the cabinet. Sodhi was the Sports Minister while Dharamsot was the Social Justice Minister.
