In a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Captain Amarinder also hit out at Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu. He wrote “Despite my profound reservation and over the unanimous advice of all the MPs from Punjab, you chose to appoint an acolyte of the Pakistan deep state Navjot Singh Sidhu who had publicly hugged Pakistan Army chief Gen Bajwa and Imran Khan.”
I have today sent my resignation to @INCIndia President Ms Sonia Gandhi ji, listing my reasons for the resignation.
