February 13, 2022 – Amarinder Singh government was run by BJP from Delhi. This was the reason to replace him, says Priyanka Gandi Vadra.
Priyanka said, “It is true that for five years we had a government here, it is also true that there were some deficiencies in that government. It got lost somewhere in the way. That government stopped running from Punjab. That government started being run from Delhi and that too not by Congress but by the BJP and the BJP-led government.”
“The hidden nexus has come out in the open today. That is why we had to change the government. We got Charanjit Singh Channi, who is one among you. He knows and feels your issues,” she added.
With Channi being the face of CM for Congress, Priyanka has asked the people to give Channi a chance. “I can speak what I have seen: Channiji is working day in and day out for Punjab. He is working all night,” she said.
Amarinder Singh resigned in September 2021, following a tussle with the State Congress Chief, Navjot Singh Sidhu.
He then quit Congress and constituted his own party, Punjab Lok Congress. He is contesting in the Punjab elections tying up with the BJP.
In his resignation letter, he made accusations against the Gandhi family.
He said Rahul and Priyanka had supported Sidhu-“an unstable individual and an acolyte of the Pakistani deep state,” instead of keeping a check on him.
He also said Sonia Gandhi had turned a blind eye on Sidhu. He said, “Sonia Gandhi turned a blind eye to the shenanigans of this gentleman who was aided and abetted by the General Secretary in-charge Harish Rawat, perhaps the most dubious individual I had the occasion to make acquaintance off.”
