Sidhu resigns from the Punjab Cabinet

Navjot Singh Sidhu, a former BJP leader who had joined the Congress just ahead of the 2017 Punjab assembly polls, has been at loggerheads with Amarinder for sometime now and being miffed with the decision of Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amrinder Singh, Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the Punjab Cabinet. 

Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh changed the portfolio of Navjot Singh Sidhu from Local Government and Tourism & Culture with Power and New and Renewable Energy Sources ministry. 

Tensions prevailed from last month where CM Amarinder Singh blamed Sidhu for the “inept handling” of the Local Government Department, claiming it resulted in the “poor performance” of the Congress in urban areas in the Lok Sabha polls where urban vote-bank had been the backbone of the Congress in Punjab.
