“Charanjit Singh Channi – a Dalit Sikh and the outgoing Technical Education Minister – will be Punjab’s new Chief Minister, the Congress said Sunday, three days after Amarinder Singh resigned, triggering high drama in the state. Harish Rawat, the Congress’ state-in-charge, tweeted saying: “”It gives me immense pleasure to announce that Charanjit Singh Channi has been unanimously elected as the Leader of the Congress Legislature Party of Punjab.”” News of Mr Channi’s appointment came as something of a surprise after sources, just a few hours earlier, appeared to confirm that another outgoing minister – Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa – would be named to the top post
