My statement is being misconstrued: Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi

A day after controversy broke on the statement made by Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit singh Channi during the rally in Punjab, ahead of Punjab Assembly elections, when he asked people of Punjab to stand together and reject the ‘bhaiyyas’ from Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Bihar, CM on Thursday issued a clarification saying that his statement was misconstrued.

The news: Chief Minister Channi during the election rally in Punjab said, “Priyanka Gandhi is Punjab’s daughter-in-law, she is the bahu of Punjabis. Bhaiyas from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi cannot come here and rule. We will not allow UP bhaiyas to stay in Punjab.”

  • Following this opposition parties hit out at Congress over the Punjab CM’s remark.
  • “My statement is being misconstrued. All migrant workers who came to Punjab till date, have toiled and taken it on the path to development. We have only love for them, nobody can change it,” news agency quoted him as saying.
  • “I was talking about people who come from outside and create disruptions here. Punjab is as much of the people of UP-Bihar, Rajasthan and elsewhere, who come here and work, as much as it is ours. So, it is not right to present it in any other manner,” he added.
  • In Punjab, Congress is trying hard to retain power but has been facing an uphill task because of the infighting within the party and emergence of AAP in the state.
  • The voting for the assembly elections in Punjab will be held on February 20.
