Congress leader Rahul Gandhi declared Charanjit Singh Channi as the party’s chief ministerial pick for the upcoming Punjab Assembly election during his visit to Ludhiana on Sunday.

The decision was taken days after the Congress high command had sought people's opinion to decide its chief ministerial candidate in Punjab through IVR (Interactive Voice Response)


Announcing the Congress's CM face, Rahul Gandhi said as per the people's suggestion, the party wanted to have a chief minister from a poor background who understands the pain of the lower classes.

"He [Channi] is from a poor family. He understands poverty and knows it deeply. And in his heart and blood there is Punjab," Rahul Gandhi said.
