Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh attacked the Congress high command for picking Charanjit Singh Channi as their CM face in the state, alongside fielding candidates allegedly involved in sand mining.
This is Amarinder Singh's first meeting with Sonia Gandhi after the appointment of Navjot Singh Sidhu as the Punjab Congress president, which the chief minister had initially opposed.

Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu pitched for a "Punjab Model with a 13-Point Agenda to be part of the Congress manifesto for the 2022 Assembly Elections".
