Sunil Jakhar Says “Sychophancy” At Congress’ Post-Mortem Meet, Slams Channi’s Appointment Before Polls

Amid the blame-game in the aftermath of Congress’ drubbing in Punjab polls, a senior Congress leader has now hit out at what he called “sycophancy” on display at the party’s post-mortem meeting on Sunday.

In the recently held assembly polls, the GOP faced massive defeat at the hand of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). 

Former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar blamed the defeat on the decision to replace Amarinder Singh by Charanjit Singh Channi in September, four months before the election.

Slamming Channi’s appointment as state CM just months before the assembly polls, Mr Jakhar tweeted: “An asset – are you joking? Thank God he (Channi) wasn’t declared a ‘National treasure’ at the CWC by the ‘Pbi’ lady who proposed him as CM in first place.”

However, the Congress leader later sought to clarify his comments, claiming that he never meant to accuse anyone of anything.

Mr Jakhar said that the party high command – the Gandhis – had been “hoodwinked” by those who had been Rajya Sabha members for 20 years.

“The Congress party is in thi state today because the people of Punjab wanted change. In the name of removing corruption, the party brought a leader who got buried in corruption allegations just days after becoming Chief Minister. My only point is that these big leaders, representing Punjab in the Rajya Sabha for 30 years, they should have the guts to tell the high command the truth and accept their mistake – that we recommended the wrong man for Chief Minister, and Rahul ji and Sonia ji gave him the responsibility,” Mr Jakhar said.

“Instead of acknowledging it, they are trying to put it on Rahul Gandhi.”
