Punjab needs serious people- Manish Tewari
Chandigarh: Congress MP from Punjab’s Anandpur Sahib targeted Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and state party president Navjot Singh Sidhu on reports that both are pushing to be named as the Chief Ministerial candidates.
:Congress MP Tewari, today said, “Punjab needs serious people,” and took potshots on both Channi and Sidhu and dubbed them as non-serious persons who are entertaining people.
Tewari tweeted, “Punjab requires a CM who has solutions to Punjab’s challenges, capacity to take tough decisions. Punjab needs serious people whose politics is Not Social Engineering, Entertainment, Freebies and NOT regime favourites rejected by people in successive elections.”
Congress, so far, has not named anyone as the chief ministerial face for the upcoming Assembly elections as the party considers that this leads to infighting and internal rift.
But state unit chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday said it is the people who would choose the next chief minister of the state and not the high command.
