The Congress announced on Sunday said that Charanjit Singh Channi has been elected as the leader of the Punjab Congress Legislative Party (CLP), paving the way for his appointment as the chief minister. The development comes a day after Congress veteran Amarinder Singh resigned as chief minister amid a bitter power tussle with state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu with less than five months to go for the Assembly polls.

Earlier, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa’s name was proposed unanimously by all Congress MLAs to be the next Punjab chief minister and their decision was conveyed to the party high-command.
