Charanjit Channi Sworn In As Punjab Chief Minister


Charanjit Singh Channi was sworn in as Punjab's new Chief Minister today after Amarinder Singh's dramatic weekend resignation just four months before an election in the state. Punjab's first Dalit Sikh Chief Minister took charge with two deputies, both carefully chosen to fortify the Congress's poll arithmetic - Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa and Om Prakash Soni. Rahul Gandhi attended the oath ceremony -- contrary to earlier reports that he would not -- making an exception given the tumultuous circumstances of the Punjab switch. He has faced heavy criticism over his handling of the Punjab Congress crisis, raging for the past six months because of the ceaseless feud between Amarinder Singh and Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.
