Above all in the resignation letter submitted. Mr. Sidhu has assigned no reason for him quitting the cabinet.
“I hereby resign as Minister from the Punjab Cabinet.” wrote Sidhu in his letter.
“Will be sending my resignation to the Chief Minister, Punjab.” he added.
After the cabinet got reshuffled on June 9. The chief minister dispossess Mr. Sidhu of the Local Bodies portfolio. And allocated him the Power and New and Renewable Energy Sources portfolios.
On this Mr. Sidhu, instead of taking charge of the new Ministry. Approached party’s Central leadership expressing his displeasure. Inculpating the “High command” of being bias and unfair in the cabinet reshuffle. On the pretext of party’s “poor performance” in the urban areas of the State in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.
CM Amarinder and Mr. Sidhu have been in the headlines since the 2019 Lok Sabha poll.
It started with Mr. Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu accusing Capt. Amarinder of blocking her Lok Sabha ticket from Chandigarh.
Later, the Chief Minister blamed Mr. Sidhu for not handling his department well, which he claimed had resulted in the Congress’s “poor performance” in urban areas in the general election.
Through this resignation we can feel that the fun loving person. Navjot Singh Sidhu has really been hurt badly. To the extent that he finally decides to resign from his post. If it’s a real loss for the party or not. We will get to know in some time. Or it’s like the party is having a really good replacement of him.
