New Delhi: Punjab Congress Legislature Party leader Charanjit Singh Channi on Saturday exuded confidence that Congress will "comfortably" form the government in the state after coming together of the fourth front adding he will go on a cycle yatra from September 27 to reach out to the masses.

The yatra will highlight the corruption and unemployment in Punjab during the last 10 years.

Channi met Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi here and discussed the political scenario in the state and briefed him about the party's prospects in the upcoming state elections.

After the meeting, he said Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP and AAP parties are disintegrating with many of their leaders quitting or looking for other options.

"The Congress party has very successfully completed its first phase of zone level programmes in which all the 117 constituencies have been covered. The Congress party will fight the ruling alliance in the coming Vidhan Sabha session also," he said.

Channi assured Gandhi that Congress will corner the ruling government on the issue of law and order, farmers' debt, urban issues and Dalit atrocities.

He also told Gandhi of his plan to start a cycle yatra in Punjab from September 27 covering all constituencies of the state in three phases. Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh will flag off the yatra.

The final programme and the constituency-wise detailed programme will be worked out soon in sync with PPCC. At least 1,000 cyclists will accompany Channi on the yatra on every phase which will last for seven days each.
