Navjot Singh Sidhu Resigns As Punjab Congress President

Navjot Singh Sidhu quits as Congress President in Punjab. However, he will continue to be a part of the Congress party.

Sidhu declared on Twitter that he already posted the letter to Congress President Sonia Gandhi about his resignation from the post.

According to the letter

 The collapse of a man's character stems from the compromise corner, I can never compromise on Punjab's future and agenda for the welfare of Punjab. Therefore I hereby resign as the President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. I Will continue to serve Congress.

He however did not explain the 'compromise' part mentioned in the letter. Sidhu also has some issues with the former MLA Rna Gurjit Singh as well.

People familiar with the matter in the congress told that Sidhu is very disappointed that he wasn't,t named the Chief Minister after Channi. The leaders also demanded that the cabinet berth may be filled up "by giving representation to a clean Dalit leader". I also heard the news that Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjit Singh be dropped from the list of ministers due to his involvement in corruption.

Sidhu's resignation comes on a day when former Punjab CM Amrinder Singh is coming to Delhi to meet with the Home Minister Amit Shah, though there is no confirmation from both sides as well. I think it is very crucial that what decision our Congress party will make now after the Resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu, Razia Sultana, and 2 ministers as well from the Congress Party and due to that reason Punjab CM Channi calls a meeting at his home.
