Charanjit Singh Channi has taken over as the new Chief Minister of Punjab, but the issue is whether the Congress has played a Dalit Card in Punjab by electing Charanjit Singh Channi? Channi comes from the Dalit Sikh community and is the first Dalit face in Punjab, which has about 32 percent of the Dalit population, to have held the biggest seat of power in the state. In such a situation, is this move of Congress a masterstroke? By the way, a tweet by Sunil Jakhar has created a ruckus on the very first day. Although Jakhar has said that he is not upset but he has strongly opposed the indications of contesting the elections under the leadership of Navjot Singh Sidhu. On one hand the opposition parties including BJP, Akali Dal alleged that Channi is just a pawn in the name of Dalit, on the other hand, Channi is being accused of being a woman IAS of 2018. The woman IAS had accused Channi of sending obscene messages to her. What did Congress Spokesperson Ragini Nayak say over this? Watch this video.
