Charuni is scheduled to announce a new political party under his Mission Punjab 2022 at a press conference in Chandigarh on Saturday.
Charuni said he was determined with the idea that the farmers, labourers, traders and general public should contest the upcoming elections with unity to sideline the traditional political parties and their leaders and change the system of the government.
Talking to TOI on Friday, Charuni said, “I will not contest elections from Punjab but will field candidates from our party. We are going to launch our political party in Chandigarh on Saturday.”
To a query, Charuni said, “Earlier, some farmer leaders were opposing my decision to enter politics but now nobody is opposing it. Punjab farm unions are holding secret meetings. They held a meeting on Thursday and Friday and one more is scheduled for Saturday. Some unions of Punjab are happy staying neutral while some are interested in elections but they are still planning on how and from where to contest. As of now, we are going ahead by ourselves and not in talks with anyone.”
