Chandigarh: A big political event took place in Punjab yesterday. Capt Amarinder Singh has tendered his resignation to the Governor. After this, the question of who will be the Chief Minister of Punjab is on everyone’s mind. Who will be the new Chief Minister of Punjab? The Congress Legislative Party (CLP) will meet again on Sunday to take a decision on this.
This time all the MLAs will come together at Punjab Bhavan around 11 am and a unanimous decision will be taken on one name. Finally, Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi will seal the name of the new Punjab chief minister.
Discussion of 3 names for the post of Chief Minister
Opposing former Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar, Punjab Congress chief Navjyot Singh Sidhu and Capt Amarinder Singh, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa is leading the race for the Punjab chief ministership. In such a situation, the party high command can seal any one of the three names in view of the forthcoming assembly elections.
Who will be beneficial to become the Chief Minister?
On one side is Sunil Zakhar, whom the Congress party can try to get by making him the Chief Minister by getting Hindu votes and Jat Sikh votes. On the other hand, there is Navjyot Singh Sidhu, who has recently been given a big responsibility by the party high command. Congress has made him state president from Punjab. Similarly, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa is considered an opponent of Captain Amarinder Singh. In such a scenario, it will be interesting to see who is in charge of Punjab. So all eyes will be on the Legislative Party meeting on Sunday and everyone will be waiting for Sonia Gandhi’s decision.
After submitting his resignation to the Governor, Capt Amarinder Singh told a press conference, “I took the decision this morning. I told Sonia Gandhi about it. This is the third time this is happening to me. I feel humiliated here. Now those who trust her will make her Chief Minister. I have been the Chief Minister for nine and a half years, but I feel humiliated by the way the party has put pressure on me by meeting me three times in two months.
