Chandigarh. Congress leader Sunil Jakhar, dissatisfied with Punjab, has given a big blow to the party on Saturday amid the Congress’s Chintan Shivir. Jakhar said goodbye to the party by going live on Facebook at 12 noon. Before saying goodbye to the party, this Punjab leader has also removed the introduction related to the bio of all his social media accounts. During Facebook Live, Jakhar lashed out at Congress leader Ambika Soni. He also asked many questions to Sonia Gandhi.
Explain that the Congress had decided to remove Sunil Jakhar, former president of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, from all party posts for indiscipline and since then Jakhar was running angry. Jakhar was counted among the strong leaders of Punjab Congress and at one time he was also a contender for the post of Chief Minister.
Sunil Jakhar said that he was heartbroken when three generations of his family were stripped of all party posts for not following the party line after serving the Congress for 50 years. Jakhar alleged that the Congress leadership was surrounded by sycophants. Congress is suffering because of this only. He appealed to party chief Sonia Gandhi to do politics in the whole country but spare Punjab.
On Congress’s Chintan Shivir, Jakhar said that I feel sorry for the condition of Congress. This Chintan Shivir is just a formality, nothing more. During this, Jakhar was very tough on party leader Ambika Soni. He said that Soni defamed Hindus. He said that Hindu should not be made CM.
Jakhar criticized Channi
Jakhar had also criticized former CM Charanjit Singh Channi and termed him as a burden for the Congress after the defeat in the state from Aadh. Jakhar had earlier claimed after Amarinder Singh’s abrupt withdrawal last year that 42 MLAs from Punjab wanted him to be the chief minister and only two were in support of Channi. Jakhar was at the fore in the race for the post of CM after Amarinder’s withdrawal, though his being a Hindu went against him. Jakhar’s chances of becoming CM came to an end when party leader Ambika Soni had said that Congress should go with a Sikh face.
