Amritsar : Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu tendered his resignation from Punjab Cabinet as Punjab Minister posting his resignation letter dated June 10 to Rahul Gandhi, on his official Twitter account.
Almost 30 minutes after the first tweet, Sidhu posted, “Will be sending my resignation to the chief minister, Punjab.”
However, it is unclear as to why the resignation was not sent to the chief minister in the last one month.
Last month, Navjot Singh Sidhu was stripped of the portfolios of local government and tourism and culture by the chief minister and assigned the portfolio of new and renewable energy. Soon after the reshuffle, he had gone incommunicado.
“We swim and we sink together….It is collective responsibility. My department has been singled out publicly. One must have the ability to see things from the right perspective. I cannot be taken for granted. I have been a performer throughout. I am answerable to the people of Punjab,” he said following the reshuffle.
An ‘adamant’ navjot SIngh Sidhu has not assumed the new charge since June 6 when he was divested of charge of local government and tourism and cultural affairs portfolios in a cabinet reshuffle, the first after the Lok Sabha election results.
