Navjot Sidhu resigns from Punjab cabinet after feud with chief minister Amarinder Singh | india news

Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu who has been involved in a tussle with his boss chief minister Amarinder Singh resigned from the state cabinet on Sunday.

Sidhu made the announcement on Twitter and sent the letter to Rahul Gandhi instead of Amarinder Singh. “My letter to the Congress President Shri. Rahul Gandhi Ji, submitted on 10 June 2019,” he tweeted.

Last month, Sidhu was stripped of his portfolios of Local Bodies, Tourism and Culture ministries after he skipped a cabinet meeting and took a swipe at Amarinder in a press conference saying that he “cannot be taken for granted” and he is only “answerable to the people of Punjab”.

Sidhu was assigned the power portfolio in the reshuffle but even a month later the cricketer-turned-politician didn’t assume charge. CM has been chairing meets in the power department in Sidhu’s absence.
