Navjot Singh Sidhu couldn't stand Dalit was made Punjab CM, alleges AAP
Will continue to serve the Congress, he further wrote.It is immediately not known what prompted Sidhu to leave the post of the Punjab Congress chief.
The Congress has sought to burnish its pro-Dalit credentials ahead of next year's Assembly elections by making Charanjit Singh Channi Channi the first member of the community to become Punjab chief minister.
He had taken over as the state party chief in July amid a leadership tussle with Amarinder Singh, who stepped down as chief minister 10 days ago while accusing the party's high command of humiliating him.
AAP Punjab co-in-charge Raghav Chadha termed it ''a complete and absolute state of anarchy in Punjab Congress''. ''How can the people of Punjab expect these selfish leaders to give a stable, progressive and inclusive administration? How can these people be trusted with a state which has a 550-km border with Pakistan?'' Chadha tweeted.
The AAP is the main opposition in Punjab.
In his letter to Gandhi, Sidhu wrote, ''The collapse of a man's character stems from the compromise corner, I can never compromise on Punjab's future and the agenda for the welfare of Punjab.'' ''Therefore, I hereby resign as the president of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. Will continue to serve the Congress,'' he further wrote.
