Navjot Singh Sidhu resigns as Punjab Congress Chief

Navjot Singh Sidhu, the Punjab Congress chairman, resigned today, a major setback for the Gandhis, who may have believed that changing Chief Ministers would help settle the state’s turmoil before early next year’s elections.

The cricketer-turned-politician posted a resignation letter on Twitter, expressing his displeasure with the Punjab cabinet’s continuing changes.

“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 Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. I will continue to serve the Congress,” Navjot Sidhu, 57, wrote in his letter to Sonia Gandhi, which he posted on social media. He had taken charge of the party in Punjab in July.

According to sources, Mr Sidhu was dissatisfied with the cabinet changes made by incoming Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, who was viewed as a close ally.

Mr Sidhu was popularly perceived as acting as “Super Chief Minister” in several choices, although he was reportedly ignored in recent controversial appointments.

He was particularly enraged by officials related to the “sacrilege” case being appointed to critical positions.
