After Quitting As Minister, Navjot Sidhu Finds Ally In Shatrughan Sinha
Congress leader Shatrughan Sinha on Sunday praised party colleague Navjot Singh Sidhu and said he was “appalled” by his decision to quit the Punjab cabinet, hours after the former state minister tweeted a copy of his resignation letter.
“Rather appalled to learn of Navjot Singh Sidhu’s resignation from the Punjab Cabinet & Ministry,” Mr Sinha said in a tweet. “He has been a supremely talented and popular sportsman/politician. Above all, a wonderful human being and man in demand, who is also a dear friend,” he said.
Navjot Sidhu and Mr Sinha were both former BJP rebels who joined the Congress party. While Mr Sidhu had resigned from the Rajya Sabha in July 2016, he finally quit the BJP in September that year. Soon after, Mr Sidhu was believed to have been in talks with the Aam Aadmi Party and even floated his own party briefly, before joining the Congress in January 2017, just ahead of assembly elections in Punjab.
