`Even in Punjab they can’t help themselves’

JAMMU, July 14: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was sulking after being stripped off key portfolios in the Punjab cabinet reshuffle in June, has resigned from the Amarinder Singh cabinet.
Sidhu took to Twitter on Sunday, making public his resignation letter dated June 10 addressed to Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
"I hereby resign as Minister from Punjab Cabinet," Sidhu said in the letter to the Congress chief, which he posted on his Twitter handle.
In another tweet, Sidhu said he would be sending his resignation letter to the chief minister.
Reacting, NC leader and former Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah wondered what was going wrong with the grand old party, stating Punjab was the one state where the Cong is well-placed and even there ‘they can’t help themselves.’
He wrote: “The one state where the Congress is well placed & even here they can’t help themselves. Oh to be in the BJP right now with the principal opposition party imploding all around them.”
On June 6, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had divested Sidhu of the Local Government and Tourism and Cultural Affairs Departments and allotted him the power and new and renewable energy portfolio.
