“The new Punjab Chief Minister will be announced later this afternoon as the Congress has called a meeting of its MLAs for the second time in as many days, sources have told NDTV. The MLAs on Saturday authorised party president Sonia Gandhi to pick a new Chief Minister for the state following Captain Amarinder Singh’s resignation months before the state polls. Sources say over 50 MLAs had written to Sonia Gandhi demanding that the “”Captain”” be replaced as Chief Minister. In his parting shot, Amarinder Singh, 79, said he had been “”humiliated thrice”” and that the Congress is free to “”appoint whoever they trust””.
