Navjot Singh Sidhu resigns as Punjab Congress chief

Not happy over the first expansion of Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s cabinet, state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday resigned from his post. But Sidhu said he would continue in the party.

Sidhu announced his resignation on his Twitter handle in just an hour after Channi announced the allocation of portfolios to his Cabinet colleagues.

In a letter to INC President Sonia Gandhi, Sidhu wrote, “The collapse of a man’s character stems from the compromise corner, I can never compromise on Punjab’s future and the agenda for the welfare of Punjab.”

“Therefore, I hereby resign as the President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. Will continue to serve the Congress,” he added.

It is learned that Sidhu was upset over the non-inclusion of the MLAs of his choice in the expanded Cabinet and the appointment of the new Advocate General, A.P.S. Deol.
On Sidhu’s resignation, former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh tweeted, “I told you so, he is not a stable man and not fit for the border state of Punjab.”
