BJP leader and Union Minister for Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said that Rahul Gandhi does not hold any position in the party so he doesn’t hold any authority to announce the CM candidate’s face.

He further said that the Congress leader is just one of the MPs of Congress and the people of Punjab would like to know the authority he holds in the part. He also argued that Rahul Gandhi had quit as the Congress president in 2019 and his only qualification now is that he holds the surname Gandhi.

Rahul Gandhi along with Charanjit Singh Channi, Navjot Singh Sidhu, and Sunil Jakhar also conducted close door-to-door meetings and engaged with the people. Senior Congress leader Sunil Jakhar on Sunday announced he had quit active politics, and there was no question of him being the Congress’s Punjab CM face.

Punjab Assembly Elections 2022 are slated for February 20 and will elect the 117 members of the 16th Assembly of the Punjab Legislative Assembly.
