Harish Chaudhary replaces Harish Rawat as new AICC in-charge for Punjab

Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Friday appointed Harish Chaudhary as AICC in charge of Punjab, relieving Harish Rawat of the charge.

Rajasthan minister Chaudhary played a key role as the pointsperson between Rahul Gandhi and Punjab Congress leaders during recent developments in the state.

A former general secretary, Punjab affairs in charge, during the 2017 Assembly election, Chaudhary has also been in the forefront brokering peace between CM Charanjit Channi and Punjab Congress chief Navjot Sidhu over the past few days.

What a fraud you are:  Amarinder to Sidhu

Hitting back at Navjot Singh Sidhu for calling Capt Amarinder Singh as “architect” of the Centre’s three farm laws, the former Punjab CM has said Punjab Congress president was “clueless about the interests of Punjab and its farmers”.

“What a fraud and cheat you are Navjot Singh Sidhu! You’re trying to pass off my 15-year-old crop diversification initiative as connected with farm laws, against which I’m still fighting and with which I’ve linked my own political future,” Amarinder said after Sidhu posted an old video of the former CM.
