Has the Congress finally picked its chief ministerial candidate for the Punjab assembly elections? And is it incumbent chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi? From what can be seen on its official Twitter handle, the grand old party used actor-philanthropist Sonu Sood’s statement that people want “a person from humble origins” as the CM.
In a video posted by Congress Twitter, Sood is seen saying “a person who’s forced into the CM’s job can truly bring about change”, followed by a montage of Channi’s visuals and dramatic background music pitching him as the man for the CM’s job.
In the video, Sood says, “The real chief minister, or even, king, is a person who is forced into the job… it should be a backbencher, someone who is brought from the back and given the job, is told you deserve it. The person should not have to struggle, or tell everyone that he should be chief minister… Only such a person can bring about change.”
Captioning the video clip, the Congress in Hindi has said, “Punjab is saying we will empower one and all with our stamp.” The official Twitter handle of Punjab Congress has also shared the video clip.
There is, however, no official statement by the Congress or even the state unit about Channi being picked as the CM face.
Until last week, the top leadership in the Congress was in a bind over state unit chief Navjot Singh Sidhu’s insistence on being declared the chief ministerial face for the upcoming assembly elections. But it looks like it is not the case now as Sidhu’s face is completely missing from the video clip.
It is also being said Channi’s handling of the recent fracas over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security lapse in Ferozepur seems to have helped his case and make the Gandhis see the bigger picture.
