Sidhu submitted his resignation to Rahul who had already resigned as president of Congress: chugh

Chandigarh - (Face2News)

BJP has strongly reacted to Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu’s announcement of his resignation on Twitter and submitting it to Rahul Gandhi, the former national president of Congress.

  Tarun Chugh, the national secretary of the party, said it was strange that Sidhu submitted his resignation to Rahul who had already resigned as president of Congress.He said instead of waiting for Sidhu's resignation Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh should dismiss Sidhu as he has made his intention clear not to continue in the government as a Cabinet Minister.

“It’s just a drama. Sidhu says he handed over his resignation to Rahul, who had already resigned as AICC chief and having resigned as the chief of party was not in a position to accept or reject his resignation,” Chugh said.

The BJP leader said this move of Sidhu was highly manipulative and political.

Chugh said Sidhu has today tweeted his resignation which shows that it was tendered on 10th of June, 2019 but leaves people confused.

"The question is whether it was handed over to Rahul on 10th of June or today i.e. on 14th of July. Further, it is also not clear why Sidhu chose to send his resignation to Rahul and not to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh or Governor VP Singh Badnore," he said.

He said it seems that Sidhu actually wanted to use his resignation as a political tool to create pressure on Congress high command and Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh.

Chugh, who had earlier too raised the issue of Sidhu enjoying government facilities and perks but not delivering as a Cabinet Minister, said it was highly unethical of Sidhu to enjoy the perks even as he had resigned on June 10, 2019. The BJP national secretary urged Governor Badnore and CM Capt Amarinder Singh to immediately dismiss Navjot Singh Sidhu in the interest of justice and fairplay.
