Meanwhile, Captain Amarinder Singh opened up on Navjot Singh Sidhu’s resignation and said “If Sidhu doesn’t want to do his job, there’s nothing i can do about it“. After Punjab Cabinet Reshuffle, the Congress Leader was given the Power Ministry, which he declined and never taken charge.
Also, the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh said on a rift which was the root of the tussle between them. He said, “I have never opposed Mrs. Sidhu, in fact, I was the one who recommended to Rahul Ji that she contests from Bathinda. It was Sidhu who said that his wife will not contest from Bathinda but from Chandigarh. So it was not for him to decide this, the party decides these things.”
