Punjab Cabinet expansion soon, key Amarinder aides likely to be dropped by Channi govt

Punjab Cabinet expansion

Days after the swearing-in of newly appointed Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, hectic parleys are on at the state Congress over the Cabinet expansion.

While former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar met Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi in Delhi, Captain Amarinder Singh, who vacated the CM post in a rush, is gearing up to put up another fight.

Meanwhile, Sunil Jakhar, who was the frontrunner for the post of leader of Punjab Congress Legislative Party, travelled with the Gandhi siblings from Chandigarh to Delhi on Wednesday.

Jakhar has expressed unhappiness over Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Rawat’s statement saying Navjot Singh Sidhu will be the face of Punjab Congress for the 2022 assembly elections.

Punjab Cabinet Expansion

Amid all the tension in Punjab Congress since the appointment of Sidhu loyalist Charanjit Channi, a Cabinet expansion is likely during this weekend, said sources.

Sources have also said that some of the key aides of Captain Amarinder Singh are likely to be dropped from the Punjab Cabinet.

Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi, Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, Shyam Sundar Arora, Balbir Sidhu and Gurpreet Singh Kangar are likely to be dropped, said the sources. On the other hand, Brahm Mohindra is likely to become the Punjab Assembly Speaker.

News faces that are likely to be inducted in the Punjab Cabinet are Gurkirat Singh Kotli, Sangat Singh Gilzian, Surjit Dhiman and Kuljit Nagra.

Charanjit Channi, his two deputies Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa and OP Soni and state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu flew down to New Delhi to discuss the Cabinet expansion with the party’s central leadershi on Tuesday.

The team met AICC general secretary KC Venugopal and AICC general secretary and Punjab affairs in-charge Harish Rawat.
