Change has happened in Punjab just a few days ago. But from now on the news of split in Charanjit Singh Channi’s cabinet has started coming to the fore. Punjab cabinet minister Razia Sultana has resigned. Razia Sultana on Tuesday stepped down as a cabinet minister in the state government, hours after Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the post of Punjab Congress president.
In her resignation letter to Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, Sultana said she was resigning “showing solidarity with Navjot Singh Sidhu”. Please tell that Razia Sultana got the Ministry of Water Supply and Sanitation and Women and Child Development. Razia Sultana is the wife of Mohammad Mustafa, advisor to Navjot Singh Sidhu. He said that Navjot Singh Sidhu is a man of vassals. They have no greed. He is fighting for Punjab and Punjabis.
Rajia Sultana said that she would continue to work as a party worker. Apart from this Yogendra Dhingra resigned as the General Secretary of Congress showing solidarity with Navjot Singh Sidhu. Dhingra is the third Congress leader to step down after Sidhu’s resignation after minister Razia Sultana and state party treasurer Gulzar Inder Chahal.
