"Power is shifting from the elite class to the ordinary citizens. This is a new era and the Congress is also adapting to it," Charanjit Singh Channi said while speaking with Hindustan Times’ national political editor Sunetra Choudhury on the last day of HTLS 2021. Charanjit Singh Channi was named the chief minister of Punjab months ahead of the assembly elections in the state in 2022 amid a power struggle between the then CM Captain Amarinder Singh and the Congress’ unit president Navjot Singh Sidhu. “I too was surprised when I was made the CM. I forgot that I was speaking to my leader,” Channi said, adding that he cried as he spoke to Rahul Gandhi when he called him. Watch the full video for more details.
