Congress Rejects Navjot Singh Sindhu’s Resignation, Asks State Leadership To Resolve Matter at Their Own Level
Navjot Singh Sidhu has resigned as the president of Punjab Congress unit.

New Delhi: Navjot Singh Sidhu’s resignation from the post of Punjab Congress chief, earlier in the day, came as a shocker for the grand old party. Sidhu in his letter to Sonia Gandhi 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. Therefore, I hereby resign as the President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. Will continue to serve the Congress.”
