Voting for upcoming Punjab legislative assembly elections will begin from 20 Feb 2022 and will conclude on 10 Mar 2022 but the biggest question in everybody’s mind is that who iss going to be the next CM of Punjab. Well the fight for the next chief minister of Punjab is looking very interesting right now as there are many big players fighting these elections but still as per the pollsters and election pundits Indian National Congress is looking the most favourite to form the next government in Punjab.
But even then the question remains the same because Indian National Congress has not yet announced the CM face for Punjab and right now Charanjit Siingh Channi and Navjot Singh Sidhu are looking like the prime contenders for next Punjab CM face of Congress but it will be interesting to see who will get the final nod from the Rahul-Sonia duo and the announcement is expected by 6 Feb 2022.
Well as per our information the Congress high command is in very much favour of making Navjot Singh Sidhu their next CM face of Punjab as they are afraid that if Sidhu didn’t become the CM face for the upcoming Punjab elections then he might leave the party and this will be a very big jolt to the Congress election campaign.
But the biggest hurdle in announcing Sidhu as the CM face of Congress for the Rahul-Sonia duo is that the local leadership in Punjab Congress is in very much favour of Charanjit Singh Channi. Most of the sitting Congress MLA’s from previous Congress tenure in Punjab are regarded as close allies of Channi and if Sonia-Rahul duo announced Sidhu as the CM face then there is a fear of a huge revolt by these local leaders within the Punjab Congress.
So it will be very interesting to see that who will get announced as the CM face of Congress for Punjab 2022 legislative assembly elections.
