Let us inform that former Punjab Congress President Sunil Jakhar, who is angry, met Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. It is believed that Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi have succeeded in cultivating Sunil Jakhar.
Former state chief Sunil Jakhar, who kept on becoming the Chief Minister of Punjab after the resignation of Captain Amarinder Singh, is now happy with the decisions of the Congress High Command. Jakhar, who went to meet Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi, tweeted on Friday, terming the decision of Charanjit Singh Channi as the Chief Minister as a bold step and praised Rahul.
Jakhar tweeted that Rahul Gandhi has opened up opportunities for others in the party to come forward by electing Charanjit Channi as the Chief Minister. This decision, which is included in the practice of Sikhism, is an important step not only for the politics of Punjab but also for the social fabric of the state.

It is noteworthy that Sunil Jakhar was elected as the leader of the legislature party meeting held in the presence of three observers of the high command at Punjab Bhawan on the same day the Captain submitted his resignation. Although his name was scheduled to be announced the next day by party president Sonia Gandhi, even before the next morning, the current deputy CM Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa raised the demand for a Jat Sikh to be made chief minister. As a result, Sunil Jakhar kept on becoming the Chief Minister. Since then, Jakhar was angry with the party and other MLAs.
