Navjot Singh Sidhu
Sidhu tweeted his letter of resignation addressed to the Congress president.
The situation in Punjab is the latest sign that the Congress's inability to resolve the Rahul Gandhi impasse in Delhi is affecting the party's state governments.
The Congress is set to win 8 seats in the state but the CM didn’t waste the chance to take a dig at his bête noire.
CM Amarinder Singh was apparently referring to Sidhu’s “rebellious” remarks in Bathinda on 17 May, when he appeared to corner the Congress government.
Singh asked Pakistan PM Imran Khan to show “guts” and hand over Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar to India.
Sidhu had asked whether an entire nation can be blamed for a handful of people.

Kumar also said that India did not need Muslims youths like Ajmal Kasab.
Amarinder Singh is learnt to have sought information from the wildlife department to know whether he can keep the bird.
The Punjab minister has been advised "complete rest" for three-five days by doctors.
He said, "Every day ten thousands pictures were clicked. Among them who is Chawla or Cheema that I do not know."
