The rebellion within Congress deepens after Navjot Kaur Sidhu, wife of Navjot Singh Sidhu stepped down from the Congress party. According to the reports, Sidhu will now work as a social worker for the people of Punjab.
Her husband, Navjot Singh Sidhu, who has been at loggerheads with Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and was stripped off key portfolios in the cabinet reshuffle in June, resigned from the party earlier.
The 55-year-old Sidhu took to Twitter, making public his resignation letter, which was sent just four days after his portfolio was changed. The resignation letter dated June 10 was addressed to Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
"I hereby resign as Minister from the Punjab Cabinet," Sidhu said in the letter to the Congress chief, which he posted on his Twitter handle. The date of his resignation letter was a day after he had met Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi when his portfolio was changed.
In another tweet later, Sidhu said he would be sending his resignation letter to the chief minister.
