Amritsar: Former national president of the party Rahul Gandhi, who arrived to campaign for the Congress in the assembly elections in Punjab, was seen battling on the face of the CM's post in the state. During the Jalandhar virtual rally, Rahul Gandhi said that the Congress will go into the Punjab assembly elections with the CM face and it will be announced soon after consulting the party workers. Now political pundits believe that Rahul's statement could add to the political turmoil in the Punjab Congress, as many leaders are pushing for a CM face in the Congress.
Several Congressmen, including Punjab Congress unit president Navjot Singh Sidhu and CM Charanjit Singh Channi, have repeatedly demanded rahul gandhi to announce the face of the CM face as soon as he got a chance. Sidhu and Channi had also reiterated their demand to announce the face of the CM face on the stage in front of Rahul Gandhi in Jalandhar. In such a situation, Rahul Gandhi has put the ball in the court of the party workers instead of taking a decision immediately and said that he will announce the face soon.
On the question of CM Face, Rahul Gandhi said, "When I was coming, Navjot Singh Sidhu and Charanjit Singh Channi in the car said that the biggest question is who will lead the Congress in Punjab? Rahul said that both the leaders said that whoever leads will be helped by another person with all his might. "Whatever party workers want and what Punjab wants, we will take the decision of the CM accordingly, we will take a decision on it by asking our workers. Soon the CM will announce the face.
