Chandigarh/IBNS: Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi drew praise on social media with a sudden pause on his way home on Sunday night. In videos on Twitter, the Chief Minister was seen joining people rescuing a cow from a ditch.

"On my way back to the residence, a cow had fallen in a pit. Efforts are being made for the rescue," Channi tweeted around midnight the same day, sharing a 17-minute video.

The Chief Minister was seen giving his inputs as a group discussed, in Punjabi, the right way of pulling the cow out to safety.

Channi was seen holding a torch as the group tried to pull the animal out.

The chief minister left the spot saying, "Changa Maasi, dhyaan rakhin, bach gayi tu (great! You have been saved. Take care.)," a journalist Man Aman Singh Chhina tweeted

Channi's video garnered over 15,000 views and close to 2,000 likes.

Many appreciated him for the act and some compared him with Navjot Singh Sidhu, the Punjab Congress Chief.
