Punjab CM hits back at Rahul Gandhi over 'remote control CM' jibe

Chandigarh: The Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann reacted on Tuesday to Rahul Gandhi's "remote control CM" jab, saying the Congressman lacked the moral authority to speak on the matter.

Mann said that, "unlike Charanjit Singh Channi who was appointed by Rahul Gandhi," he was elected by the people of Punjab.

Rahul Gandhi made certain remarks during his visit to the state that Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann strongly disapproved of, saying "pot is calling kettle black" by making such unfounded claims.

Mann said that Rahul Gandhi has the moral authority to criticise democracy or democratic principles, pointing out that the Gandhi scion was elected Chief Minister of Punjab by voters who gave their party a resounding majority of the vote. He said that he has been elected by the people to serve them, in contrast to Charanjit Singh Channi, "who was made Chief Minister by Rahul Gandhi."

The Punjab chief minister added that Rahul Gandhi is demonstrating the consequences of ignorance by making unfounded claims in the region.

By using the Chief Ministers as puppets, Congress has irreparably damaged democratic standards. Before expressing any opinions on the matter, Rahul Gandhi should examine his conscience, he said.

CM Mann recalled how Captain Amarinder Singh, a former chief minister of Punjab, was fired and said, "Not too long ago, Rahul had himself removed Captain Amarinder Singh from Chief Ministership and humiliated him."The CM said that the Congress leader has forgotten that "hands of his family are drenched with murder of democracy in country and people will never forgive them for this sin".

Earlier on Monday, Rahul Gandhi took a commet at Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann, saying that he should run the state from Punjab instead of being a "remote control".
