Chandigarh, (Sonia) 20 July 2019 : Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Saturday accepted his Cabinet minister Navjot Sidhu’s resignation.

The Chief Minister forwarded the resignation to Governor Punjab V.P. Singh Badnore for formal acceptance, an official in the Chief Minister’s Office told.

Sidhu, who had been at loggerheads with the Chief Minister, formally resigned on July 14 as Minister for Power and New and Renewable Energy Sources, the portfolio he had not taken charge of.

Amarinder Singh has said that if Sidhu did not want to do his job, there was nothing that he could do about it.

The Minister should have accepted his new portfolio instead of shunning work in the middle of the crucial paddy season, said the Chief Minister, reiterating that Sidhu was given a job, which he should have accepted and done.

On June 6, Sidhu had been divested of the charge of Local Government and Tourism and Cultural Affairs portfolios and given Power and New and Renewable Energy Sources in a Cabinet reshuffle, the first after the Lok Sabha election results.
