Taun Chugh said, " I've written a letter to Punjab Governor. There is a constitutional crisis in Punjab. It has been more than a month that a Minister (Navjot Singh Sidhu), who took an oath to the office, is absent; though he's drawing a salary & enjoying the perks."


Furthermore, he said, "He (Navjot Singh Sidhu) has been migrated and feud between CM & him has caused constitutional crisis. I request Punjab Governor to take decision in Punjab's interest. If Minister doesn't want to work someone else should look after his dept. If he's drawing a salary but not working, action should be taken.
