Former Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar has launched a scathing attack on Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi over accepting the resignation of Advocate General APS Deol and initiating his replacement.

In a tweet shared by Sunil Jakhar, he said, " The ouster of a competent yet 'allegedly' compromised officer has exposed a 'really' compromised CM. Giving rise to a pertinent question- Whose government is it Anyway ? (*Apologies to BBC's radio drama - Whose line is it Anyway)"

Apparently bowing to "pressure" from Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, the state government, led by Charanjit Singh Channi, has removed APS Deol as Advocate General. As per sources, Navjot Singh Sidhu had put this as a pre-condition for resuming his duties as the Punjab Congress chief, even as he has withdrawn his resignation tendered earlier.
