Under fire, Congress says will fight Punjab polls under both Channi, Sidhu

IndiaTimes Monday, 20 September 2021
A row erupted in Punjab Congress on Monday after senior leader Sunil Jakhar slammed AICC state in-charge Harish Rawat for purportedly saying the party would go to the 2022 polls under the leadership of state unit chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. Opposition BJP promptly latched on to Jakhar’s statement to question the Congress claiming credit for installing a Dalit Sikh CM, saying Channi would only be keeping the seat warm for a few months.
