Hours after meetings and feedbacks from MLAs, the AICC have narrowed down Sukhjinder Randhawa as the new CLP leader. Sukhjinder Randhawa is a traditional Congressman who has played an essential role in taking on Capt. Amarinder Singh.
According to party sources, a formal announcement of the appointment of the new Chief Minister will arrive shortly as per TOI.
Capt. Amarinder Singh, a Congress veteran, quit as Chief Minister of Punjab with only less than five months left for the Assembly polls. The move arrived after a brawl with the state party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. Capt. Amarinder Singh reportedly said that he felt ‘humiliated’ over the mishandling of the crisis by the party.
