Channi took oath as chief minister of Punjab on 20 September, along with Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa and OP Soni, who were sworn in as deputy chief ministers.
After his swearing-in ceremony, Channi promised that his government will work for the welfare of the people of Punjab. He also assured that his government will waive off the electricity and water bill of the farmers in the state.
