MLAs and Congress leaders are gathering at Randhawa’s house after the names were sent by the Punjab Congress. Leaders like Navjot Singh Sidhu have reached his house. Only announcement is left regarding Randhawa’s name.
Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, who was a cabinet minister in the Amarinder Singh government in Punjab, said on Sunday that he has never been aspirant for any post. He made this remark at a time when his name is also being taken among the possible contenders for the leader of the Congress Legislature Party. Asked whether his name for the next chief minister was also being discussed, Randhawa said that he and his family have never longed for any post.
When asked by journalists whether he was talking to the next Chief Minister of Punjab, he said, “You are talking to a Congress worker”. “A chief minister remains in office as long as his party and the people of the state stand by him,” said Randhawa.
Amarinder Singh on Saturday resigned from the post of Chief Minister and said that he felt humiliated by repeatedly calling the meeting of MLAs, after which he took the step.
