Navjot Singh Sidhu has taken everyone by surprise by giving in his resignation as the Rajya Sabha MP Nominee and BJP member. Speculations are that former BJP member is planning to join the Aam Aadmi Party instead.
On the day of his resignation, he walked into the Parliament adorning a yellow turban, which is the symbol of the AAP leaders of Punjab. He formally handed over his resignation to the Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari and walked off quietly.
Nothing was spoken of until 4 o’clock when his resignation was announced by the Rajya Sabha secretary general and that it had been accepted. But that’s not all, Navjot Sidhu’s wife, Navjot Kaur, an MLA of Punjab has also given in her resignation from the party and her post.
Many reasons lie in front of us to speculate their sudden decision to leave BJP. No one from the BJP persuaded the couple to stay or rethink their decision as they claim that the said couple had already had two serious consultations with AAP on joining the party.
