New Delhi.The Congress has surprised its opposition parties Akali Dal and Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab by making political bets of Charanjit Singh Channi of Scheduled Castes (SC) as the Chief Minister to stop the political land that was damaged by the Captain-Sidhu tussle. .This decision of change in Punjab may have been taken as a political compulsion, but by making Channi the CM, the Congress has also tried to indicate that it will not only in the elections of five states next year, but at one time in the favor of its traditional vote bank. Will try to bring
Attempt to break into BSP's land in UP
With the help of this decision, Congress will try its best to break into the political ground of BSP not only in Punjab but also in Uttar Pradesh.The biggest reason for Congress preparing to play this political bet is that Charanjit Singh Channi will be the only Chief Minister of SC community in the whole country at this time.Some states like Jharkhand and Northeast as well as Andhra Pradesh have chief ministers from tribal and Christian communities.But in 28 states and two union territories, there was no SC Chief Minister anywhere.
Surprised even the opposition parties
In Bihar, no state had an SC chief minister in the last six years after Jitan Ram Majhi stepped down as CM in 2015.That is why in the midst of the political tussle in Punjab, Congress has come up with this formula to give a new social equation to its politics.SC community is a big vote bank in Punjab and Akali Dal, Aam Aadmi Party and BJP were all making election promises to cater to this section.
multiple targets with one arrow
To cater to this class, the Akali Dal has also made an electoral alliance with the BSP and it is obvious that this decision of the Congress will harm the BSP in Punjab as well.In Uttar Pradesh too, the Congress is targeting the BSP, apart from the BJP, to regain its political base.Putting the BSP in the dock is part of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's political strategy.
was not an easy decision
Naturally, this experiment of the Congress in Punjab could give an opportunity for the party to make a comeback among the Scheduled Castes in Uttar Pradesh.By the way, in the event of BJP winning the elections in Punjab, SC CM, Akali Dal and AAP are promising to make Deputy CM.In such a situation, Congress has surprised these three parties by making Charanjit Singh Channi as CM, because in the current politics of the state, the decision to hand over power to a class other than the Jat Sikh community is not easy.
... and Charanjit Singh Channi's lottery went out
Although the Congress high command tried to play the Hindu card first in Punjab and Rahul Gandhi offered senior leader Ambika Soni to become the Chief Minister, but Soni refused to become the Chief Minister, saying that Jat Sikh should be made the CM in Punjab.Sunil Jakhar was also involved in this race.But Sidhu, keeping in mind his political equation, implicated the path of Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa along with Jakhar and Charanjit Singh Channi's lottery went out in it.
