New Delhi: Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned as the president of Punjab Congress, former chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh said, “I told you so”.
In his resignation letter, Sidhu said: “The collapse of a man’s character stems from the compromise corner, I can never compromise on Punjab’s future and the agenda for the welfare of Punjab.”
He added: “I will continue to serve Congress”.
Singh meanwhile said Sidhu is “not a stable man”.
“I told you so…he is not a stable man and not fit for the border state of Punjab,” Singh said in a tweet.
Sidhu, who had been slammed by Singh as being a “friend of Pakistan”, resigned after months of power tussle between the two ending in Singh’s resignation on September 18.
The former chief minister continued his attack on Sidhu even after resigning and had been vocal against his appointment as the Punjab chief minister. Eventually, Charanjit Singh Channi was appointed as Singh’s successor.
Sidhu’s resignation came as former chief Singh is visiting Delhi amid speculations of him meeting Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president JP Nadda. Singh’s media advisor Raveen Thukral said he was in Delhi on a personal visit.
It also came on a day when Congress is set to welcome two new members to the party- former student leader Kanhaiya Kumar and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani.
