Navjot Singh Sidhu has now resigned from the Amarinder Singh cabinet in the Congress in crisis in Karnataka and Goa.
Sidhu posted a copy of his resignation to Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday and wrote, "My resignation was submitted to Rahul Gandhi on June 10, 2019."
Sidhu has now sent a resignation to the Chief Minister. In Punjab, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu have been running long disturbances.
Since the poor performance in the Lok Sabha elections, the debate came to fruition. Amarinder Singh accused Siddhu for the Congress's performance in Punjab. After this his ministry was also changed.
With the urban body, the tourism-cultural department was taken back and given charge of the energy renewable department.
Navjot Singh Sidhu did not take charge of the new ministry in protest and handed over the resignation.
Congress is already engaged in trying to save its legislators in two states. The Congress-JDS coalition government in Karnataka is facing a threat.
- Sidhu resigns from Punjab cabinet
- Captain and Sidhu quarrels over what
This conflict in Punjab has now reached the resignation. In the Congress, Sidhu came in January 2017. Sidhu's resignation reached almost two-and-a-half-year's innings.
What will be the impact on Congress
Says senior journalist Jagtar Singh: "In Punjab, this crisis is not of the party but the personal conflict of two people. Navjot Singh Sidhu is here alone. He has no big support base or group in the party. In such a situation, his resignation will not affect the Congress in Punjab. ''
"Actually, he has not always been in the Congress. Earlier in the BJP, then joined the Aam Aadmi Party, also created a separate front and then came to Congress. He could not have any support base in Congress. More than the leaders of Punjab, he has been supporting Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi in Delhi. Now Rahul Gandhi is not taking any action in this matter. "
- 'Sidhu's love is comedy'
- Sidhu will live with Captain on Congress's "pitch"
Jagtar Singh said that in one way a person was fighting his fight in which he had the support of Rahul Gandhi but now he has gone. This is a personal crisis and it has never happened before.
However, political analyst Harjeshwar Pal Singh denies some extent to this disagreement. He believes that resignation can have an impact on the Congress.
Harjeshwar Pal Singh says, "Sidhu is a popular leader and has been speaking frankly against the Akali Dal. There is a perception of people that there is an internal alliance with the Akali Dal of Congress. At the same time, Sidhu is understood to speak against Akali and the voice of the people. In such a situation, Sidhu's resignation will not cause any damage to the party internally but can have an impact on popularity.
"It is also true that new MLAs have been seen with them but no one has come in the time of the crisis. They may have support inwardly, but no one will openly appear. ''
Why was the resignation
The plank of the two leaders in Punjab is not hidden from anyone. Amarinder Singh also assumed that Sidhu's political ambition was to sit in the chief minister's post.
But, how did the situation change for Sidhu so much that he needed to resign.
Jagtar Singh says, "He had no way left. His ministry was changed and Amarinder Singh openly opposed him. He must have gone to Rahul Gandhi by taking his complaint. "
"But this resignation is June 10 and if Rahul had to do something then he would have done it. Then changing the portfolio comes under the jurisdiction of the Chief Minister. In fact, the support he had earlier with the central leadership and he is not getting it anymore. In such a situation, he has stepped up a little bit more. "
Options near Sidhu
Navjot Singh Sidhu has lived in BJP and he has also become a part of the Aam Aadmi Party. In such a situation, when the situation in the Congress is weak, what options do they have?
Harjeshwar Pal Singh says that whatever the situation in the Congress, the question of going to the BJP and the Akali Dal does not arise. They have opposed both parties so that if they go back, their political career will be badly affected.
Harjeshwar says that in such a scenario it seems that he will fight in the internal battle by staying in Congress. If you talk about getting a role in the center, it is not possible to say anything on it now, you have to wait.
