After Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned as minister, wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu resigns from primary membership of Congress party

Days before the Lok Sabha 2019 elections in May, Navjot Singh Kaur had expressed her displeasure over the ticket distribution.

Months after the controversial politician Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the Congress party, today his wife, Navjot Kaur Sidhu, resigned from the primary membership of the Congress party in Punjab. Prior to this, her husband, Navjot Singh Sidhu had quit the party in June 2019.

Days before the Lok Sabha 2019 elections in May, Navjot Singh Kaur had expressed her displeasure over the ticket distribution.

Navjot Singh Sidhu who earlier headed the Local Government and Tourism and Cultural Affairs portfolios was divested of the ministry by the CM on June 6. He was made responsible for Power and New and Renewable Energy Sources during a Cabinet rejig that took place after the Lok Sabha election results were declared.

He did not assume charge of his new department and had tendered his resignation to the CM on July 14. Sidhu had then received flak for his decision to send the resignation letter to Rahul Gandhi instead of ideally sending to Captain Amarinder Singh who is the Chief Minister of Punjab or the Governor.

The loudmouth leader who had once asked PM Modi to learn nationalism from Sonia Gandhi and advertised unfailing trust in Rahul Gandhi, contending to quit politics if the Congress prince loses Amethi was sadly cold-shouldered by his party leaders. Sidhu’s relations with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh became strained and reportedly his decision to quit was after a public spat with Captain Amarinder Singh, who has admonished Navjot Singh Sidhu on multiple occasions over his behaviour.

While Amarinder Singh had in July accepted Sidhu’s resignation his party members had ridiculed Navjot Singh Sidhu’s resignation as drama and urged the Congress leader to show more dignity and decorum in his actions.

The Punjab ministers had reacted to Navjot Singh Sidhu‘s tweet on his resignation sent to Rahul Gandhi in June 2019 and his subsequent remark that he would send his formal papers to Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. “This is nothing but drama from the ‘king of theatrics’. If he had to resign, he should have followed protocol and sent it directly to the chief minister,” said the ministers.

The Punjab ministers quipped whether Navjot Singh Sidhu was “so dumb” that he didn’t know that the “cabinet minister post was not a party post, and his resignation could not be accepted by Rahul Gandhi”.
