Mumbai: In a letter to the former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Navjot Singh Sidhu wrote that he resigned from the post of minister from Punjab Cabinet.

Tweeting a copy of his resignation letter, he wrote, “My letter to the Congress President Shri. Rahul Gandhi Ji, submitted on June 10, 2019.”

However, Sidhu has been in the limelight for being involved in a tussle with the Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh.

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’
