Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Saturday said he never hankered after the chief minister's post. He is from a modest family and he has no family background in politics, he said at a session of the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2021. Recounting his initial days in politics, Channi said the Congress did not give him tickets for years, following which he became an independent candidate and then he became the leader of opposition in the Punjab Assembly. "There has been a sequence," the Punjab CM said. Talking about his modest background and how his lifestyle has not changed even after becoming the chief minister, Channi said he is still staying at the house and has not taken the CM's house. "There is no point in going to a new house for three months," Channi said. Watch the full video for more details.
