Punjab Channi first Dalit CM, shows support of farmers hours after oath

Soon after taking oath as the new CM, Channi said that Congress stands strongly with farmers asking the Center to repeal “black” farm laws.

The laws that were passed by the Center last year have cost months of intense protests and even loss of lives.

Charanjit Singh Channi took oath As 16th Punjab CM, where Rahul Gandhi attended the swearing-in.  Of note, Charanjit Singh Channi is the first Dalit chief minister of the state and said he will become the voice of the common people of Punjab and will always remain accessible to the people.

After taking over, he thanked the party leadership and told reporters here that the party has given a common person a great honor. He also termed Rahul Gandhi as a “revolutionary leader”.

he took a jibe at Aam Aadmi Party and former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh hours after replacing him in office saying, “‘Sand Mafia Stay Away, I Am Aam Aadmi’, targeting Capt Amarinder and AAP.

Charanjit Singh Channi has now shown his support for the farmers’ movement and on Monday, soon after taking oath as the new CM, Channi said that the Congress party stands firmly behind farmers agitating against the “black” farm laws that were passed by the Centre last year. He further requested the Center to repeal the three black laws.

He said, “Together, we have to make Punjab prosperous. Punjab is primarily an agrarian state. This government is a pro-farmer government, this is Congress government,” he said.  He further said, adding Congress’ ideology is to take everyone along.

On speaking of his predecessor, Amarinder Singh, Channi said he did good work as CM and said, “He is also known as the protector of water rights. He is our party leader,” he said. The party high command has given an 18-point programme and we are committed to it, said Channi, adding promises made will be fulfilled.

“We will ensure a transparent government,” he said assuringly.
