Days after facing humiliating defeat in Punjab from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday resigned from the post. The AAP came to power by sweeping the Assembly polls with a three-fourths majority as heavyweights fall by wayside. In a one-line resignation to party President Sonia Gandhi, Sidhu wrote, "I hereby resign as President (PPCC)."
Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Saturday resigned from the post after a day-long political drama and said he resigned as he felt humiliated. At the same time, he said the "future politics option is always there and I will use that option".
