Let’s sit and talk the issues out: CM Channi on Sidhu's resignation
Addressing the reporters after his second Cabinet meet, CM Channi said, "Whoever is party president, is head of the family. I had called him (Navjot Singh Sidhu) and told him that the party is supreme… I have spoken to him on phone and told him let’s sit, talk it out and resolve the issue."
Earlier today, Navjot Singh Sidhu raised questions over the appointment of the director-general of police, advocate general, and “tainted” leaders. In a video message posted on social media, Mr Sidhu said that he is ready to make any sacrifices but will not compromise on his principles.
“My fight is issue-based and I have stood by it for a long time. I cannot compromise with my ethics, my moral authority. What I witness is a compromise with issues, agenda in Punjab. I cannot misguide the high command nor can I let them be misguided,” Sidhu said in Punjabi, defending a move that has raised questions about the Gandhis’ decisions and their faith in him.
Navjot Singh Sidhu had resigned from his post of Punjab Congress chief on Tuesday, leaving Gandhis in shock ahead of the Assembly Polls in the state.
