Former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh resigns from Congress

Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday formally resigned from the Congress and sent a seven-page resignation letter to party president Sonia Gandhi. Amarinder ended his more than 40-year association with the grand old party.

In a tweet, Capt Amarinder said, “I have today sent my resignation to Congress President Ms. Sonia Gandhi ji, listing my reasons for the resignation. Amarinder Singh also mentioned the name of the new party ‘Punjab Lok Congress’

Singh had resigned as the Punjab chief minister in September amid a bitter power tussle with Sidhu, the ex-cricketer favoured over him by the party high command.
