How the Stars Aligned: Channi & Sidhu Have More Than Astrology in Common

Soon after taking over as the PPCC Chief, Navjot Singh Sidhu had marked out one Dera (a sect) to visit – the renowned Sach Khand Ballan in Jalandhar, a Dera of the Ravidassia community revered by the Dalit community. In tow was 59-year-old Charanjit Singh Chhani, a close buddy who realised the importance of dera politics in the state. Sidhu and Channi gel well and have several common interests. An interesting side to the political career of Chhani is his firm belief in astrology, something even Sidhu is fond of. The PCC chief wanted someone ‘safe’ who could be a facilitator and not a disruptor. Chhani fitted the bill perfectly.

Trudeau’s Appeals For ‘Science to End Pandemic’ as Canada Leaders Kick off Final Day of Campaign

The leaders of Canada’s main political parties on Sunday kicked off the final day of campaigning ahead of Monday’s election, with polls indicating that the Liberals of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hold an edge. Trudeau, 49, called the vote two years early to seek public approval for his left-of-center government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and regain the majority in Parliament that he lost in 2019. He first took power in 2015. His initial healthy lead vanished amid voter unhappiness with the early call. Polls show that neither the Liberals nor their rival right-leaning Conservatives have anywhere near the 38% public support needed for a majority.
