Navjot Singh Sidhu resigns as Punjab minister, sent resignation letter to Congress President Rahul Gandhi on 10th June

Navjot Singh Sidhu has tendered his resignation on 10th June to 'Congress President' Rahul Gandhi.

In a letter that has now been made public by controversial politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, the Congressman has written to ‘Congress President’ Rahul Gandhi that he is resigning as a Minister from the Punjab Cabinet.

Interestingly, Navjot Singh Sidhu has tendered his resignation on 10th June to ‘Congress President’ Rahul Gandhi. Ideally, Navjot Singh Sidhu should have addressed his resignation letter as Minister of Punjab Cabinet either to Captain Amarinder Singh who is the Chief Minister of Punjab or the Governor. It is unclear if he did that and why he chose to resign to Rahul Gandhi in the first place.

Sidhu has tweeted that he will be sending his resignation letter to Captain Amarinder Singh too. However, one wonders why he would be resigning to the Chief Minister now when he had resigned to the Congress President a month ago and why the letter did not go to the CM in the first place.

It is also interesting that the resignation letter was written by Sidhu to Rahul Gandhi a month ago, on 10th June 2019. It would seem like Rahul Gandhi kept the letter in abeyance despite resigning as the President of the party on 6th July 2019.

On 6th July, Rahul Gandhi had posted a four-page resignation letter, full of contradictions, on Twitter reiterating his decision to step down from the post of Congress president, and also taking responsibility for the election results.

In the letter, Rahul Gandhi says that he is taking responsibility for the party’s bad performance, where he admits that the party needs new leadership that could lead the fight against BJP and the RSS. However, the second half of the same letter he hints that the 2019 Lok Sabha elections were not free and fair.
