‘Discussed farmers’ issues, Kartarpur’: Punjab CM after meeting
Channi, in his first meeting with the Prime Minister after becoming the Chief Minister of Punjab, requested that the Center withdraw its decision to postpone paddy procurement by 10 days. The Center has postponed the procurement of paddy by 10 days due to rains in Punjab and Haryana. Earlier the procurement was to start from October 1 but now it will start from October 11.
“I asked the PM to resolve the issue of farmers’ protest and to resume talks with the protesting farmers. I demanded that the three laws should be withdrawn. I also requested the PM that the Kartarpur corridor , which was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, should be reopened at the earliest,” said Channi after meeting Modi.
Last month, the Congress high command had made Channi the chief minister of Punjab in place of Amarinder Singh. Channi reached the national capital around 3 pm on Friday and later went to meet the Prime Minister.
There is speculation that Channi will meet former Congress president Rahul Gandhi and other senior party leaders before returning to Punjab. Channi is likely to hold discussions with the party’s central leadership on the ongoing crisis in the Punjab Congress unit following the resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu as the state unit chief. Channi met Sidhu on Thursday before coming to the national capital.
