“On Sunday, the Congress announced Charanjit Singh CHanni as the next Chief Minister of Punjab. With this, Punjab got its first Dalit Chief Minister. While the community constitutes almost 32% of Punjab’s population, a Dalit leader has never taken over as a Chief Minister of Punjab.While, the Congress party has taken the decision to quell the infighting, it will have a far reaching impact on the state politics as far as assembly elections of 2022 are concerned. Surprisingly, this time the Congress party pulled off exactly the same method as the Modi-Shah duo who are known to throw a surprise candidate. Will making a Dalit Sikh CM of Punjab in the election season where every party is trying to woo the community, a masterstroke by the Congress party? What does it mean for the dalit population in Punjab and what impact will it have we will discuss in this video today.We are joined by Prof Ronki Ram of the Panjab University, an expert on Punjab’s Dalits.
