Notably, Sidhu announced his resignation on his Twitter handle just an hour after Channi announced allocation of portfolios to his Cabinet colleagues. He had taken over as the state party chief in July this year. In a letter to party President Sonia Gandhi, he wrote, “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,” he added.
Meanwhile, netizens had a field day following Sidhu’s resignation tweet, and many internet users predicted that Sidhu will head back to the TV reality show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. Others joked that Archana Puran Singh’s job is in danger as Navjot Singh Sidhu is all set for his next seat heist. Notably, Sidhu appeared as a judge of several comedy shows including The Kapil Sharma Show which now features Archana Puran Singh as his replacement.
