New Delhi: The issue of the feud between Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has reached the Congress leadership. Sidhu had been sulking since the Cabinet reshuffle by the chief minister who, in turn, is reportedly not happy with the minister either. Amid this scenario, Sidhu met with Congress president Rahul Gandhi, general secretary Priyanka Gandhi and senior party leader Ahmed Patel on Monday.

Sidhu is learnt to have told the party leadership he is resigning as a minister of Punjab.

In a letter addressed to the Congress president, Sidhu has said that the party’s performance in Punjab had been excellent in urban areas whereas in the rural areas the party had not performed well — and he was responsible for the former and yet the chief minister is upset with him.

Sidhu has alleged that ministers who have proved rank failures in the Lok Sabha election have been given more responsibility in the form of more than one ministry.

The rebel politician tweeted after meeting Rahul Gandhi, “Met the Congress President, handed him my letter, appraised him of the situation!”

Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, in his Cabinet reshuffle, removed Sidhu from the tourism and culture ministry. Sidhu has been given the responsibility of the department of energy and new and renewable energy. So far, Sidhu has not taken charge in this ministry. Since the reshuffle, Sidhu’s differences with Chief Minister Singh have been making the news.

On the poor performance of the Congress in the Lok Sabha election, Sidhu has already said that his department has been targeted by the captain’s camp publicly.

Sidhu had been missing from public space for a while since the Punjab Cabinet reshuffle. Now after meeting with the party leadership, Sidhu has made the point of contention public.
