In the latest development, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has resigned from the post of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chief. 

The move came 10 days after Captain Amarinder Singh stepped down as the Chief Minister of Punjab. The move also came before the visit of former CM Amarinder Singh to Delhi.

The ongoing situation in the Punjab Congress Unit could lead the Grand Old Party into a deep political crisis amid the crucial Punjab Legislative Assembly elections in 2022.

Sidhu in his resignation letter wrote, "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 the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. I will continue to serve the Congress."


Meanwhile, Sidhu was appointed as the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President in the month of July.

Former CM of Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh took a dig at Sidhu. Singh took to his Twitter and wrote, "I told you so…he is not a stable man and not fit for the border state of Punjab."
