Channi’s new team likely to have 7 new faces


After days of hectic discussions and uncertainty, the Congress leadership finally arrived at a consensus on who all will join the Punjab cabinet. The list was cleared during CM Charanjit Singh Channi’s meeting with Rahul Gandhi that went on past Friday midnight. On returning from Delhi, Channi met Punjab governor Banwarilal Purohit on Saturday, and 15 cabinet ministers will now be administered the oath of office at 4.30pm on Sunday.
