The National Commission for Women (NCW) Chief Rekha Sharma on Monday requested Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi to remove Punjab's new Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi from his post "until he comes clean" as he is an accused in the Me Too movement.

Sharma claimed that Channi sent inappropriate text messages to a female IAS officer in 2018, and was accused in 2018. 

Expressing her disappointment, Sharma in an interview with ANI requested Sonia Gandhi to remove Charanjit Singh Channi from his post of Punjab CM until he came clean.

Calling Channi a threat to women, Sharma said, "Today, he has been made Punjab CM by a party that is headed by a woman. It is betrayal. He is a threat to women safety. An enquiry should be conducted against him. If he doesn't come clean, he is not worthy to be CM. I urge Sonia Gandhi to remove him from the CM post."

She added, "Allegations were levelled against him (Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi) during Me Too movement in 2018. The State Women Commission had taken a suo moto cognizance of the matter and the chairperson sat on a dharna demanding his removal but nothing happened."
