Charanjit Singh Channi has taken oath as the first Dalit Chief Minister of Punjab amid a bitter war within the state Congress. The Congress had picked Charanjit Singh Channi as the chief minister of Punjab, a day after Amarinder Singh resigned following a bitter power tussle in the party. Punjab Governor Banwari Lal Purohit administered an oath of office and secrecy to CM Channi. Charanjeet Channi is considered close to Navjot Singh Sidhu. Along with CM Channi, three other ministers including Randhawa, Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa, and Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria have also taken the oath. Besides, they have also been part of the Sidhu camp in the party’s divided house in Punjab. Watch this episode of Nonstop 100.
