Mumbai, July 14, 2019:
Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday took to the social media to mention that he resigned from the post of a minister from Punjab Cabinet.
Navjot Singh Sidhu posted a copy of his resignation letter from Punjab Cabinet, with the tweet, “My letter to the Congress President Shri. Rahul Gandhi Ji, submitted on June 10, 2019.”
On June 10, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu had met Rahul Gandhi and handed him a letter appraising about the political situation during which he submitted the resignation letter as well.
It is to be mentioned that Sidhu has been in the limelight for being involved in a clash with the Punjab Chief Minister, Amarinder Singh.
Last month, Sidhu was stripped of his portfolios of Local Bodies, Tourism and Culture ministries after he skipped a cabinet meeting. He took a blow at Amarinder saying that he ‘cannot be taken for granted’ and he is only ‘answerable to the people of Punjab’.
