NEW DELHI: Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday announced his resignation as Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president. The cricketer-turned-politician made the announcement on Twitter.
The leader said that he has quit from the post as he "can never compromise on Punjab's future" in his letter addressed to Congress president Sonia Gandhi. "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," he wrote.
