Amritsar: Harish Chaudhary, who has been appointed in charge of the Punjab Congress, is likely to resign as a cabinet minister. Harish Chaudhary takes over the revenue ministry in Ashok Gehlot's government in Rajasthan. Chaudhary has been appointed in charge of the Punjab Congress in place of Harish Rawat on Friday (October 22).
Since then, speculations have intensified that Chaudhary may resign from the Rajasthan cabinet soon. When questioned about this, Chaudhary said that he has always believed in 'one person one post.' However, he also said that he would explain his decision. He said the party high command will accept whatever decision it takes. Talking about former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, Chaudhary said that if he (Captain) had worked, there would have been no need to change the CM in Punjab. He claimed that 'No party is in a position to fight the Congress in the present situation. The Congress will form the government back in Punjab.'
Harish Rawat, who was in charge of Punjab Congress, had requested the party high command to be relieved of the post in charge. He had said that elections are going to be held in both Punjab and Uttarakhand, so he will have to give full time in both places. In such a situation, things are becoming difficult for them. The party high command has since made Rajasthan Cabinet Minister Harish Chaudhary in charge of the Punjab Congress following his demand.
