Punjab New CM News: Charanjit Singh Channi, a three-time MLA from Rupnagar's Chamkaur Sahib, on Monday took oath as the Chief Minister of Punjab. Governor Banwarilal Purohit administered the oath of office and secrecy at the Raj Bhawan in Chandigarh. Besides Channi, the first Dalit Chief Minister of Punjab, Sukhjinder Randhawa and Brahm Mohindra also took oath as the new Deputy Chief Ministers. Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu attended the ceremony while Captain Amarinder skipped the event. Channi was unanimously elected leader of the Congress Legislature Party of Punjab after Amarinder Singh's resignation on Saturday. The Congress infighting in Punjab has been almost perpetual, ever since Navjot Singh Sidhu took over as the PPCC Chief. Amarinder after submitting his resignation said that he faced 'humiliation' within the party and lashed out at Sidhu saying he would be a destroyer for Punjab.
