Quit Rajya Sabha as was told to stay away from Punjab: Navjot Singh Sidhu
#NEW DELHI: #BJP leader and cricketer-turned-politician #Navjot Singh Sidhu said on Monday that he was asked to stay far away from Punjab – which goes to the polls next year – which is why he quit the Rajya Sabha.
“How can I leave the people who voted me in four times,” Sidhu said. He resigned+ from the Rajya Sabha on July 18.
It was speculated that Sidhu is planning to quit the BJP and join the Aam Aadmi Party (#AAP) ahead of the assembly #elections in Punjab early next year. He resigned a mere three months after the Narendra Modi government nominated him to Parliament’s upper house.
