Sunil Jakhar an asset, Congress should not lose him, says Navjot Sidhu


Shortly after Sunil Jakhar announced his resignation from Congress, party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Saturday called the former state unit chief “an asset” and told his party not to take him on. lose.

Sidhu added that any differences can be resolved on the table.



Jakhar announced his decision to separate from Congress, which removed him from office last month for alleged anti-party activities.

“Congress shouldn’t lose #suniljakhar. This is an asset worth its weight in gold. Any dispute can be resolved on the table,” Sidhu said in a tweet.

Jakhar, the disgruntled leader whose decision comes during the party’s three-day ‘Chintan Shivir’ in Udaipur, went live on his Facebook page to make the announcement.

“This is my parting gift to the party. These are my last words to members of Congress. Good luck and goodbye Congress,” Jakhar said as he announced his separation from Congress.

The former Punjab Congress speaker had been upset with the party for serving him a show cause notice on April 11. However, Jakhar chose not to respond to the panel of the Congressional Disciplinary Committee.

During his ‘dil ki baat’ live on his Facebook page, Jakhar also attacked some leaders ‘sitting in Delhi’ and particularly targeted party leader Ambika Soni for her statement made last year in which she made sure let the party go with a Sikh face.

Notably, the AICC in charge of Punjab affairs, Harish Chaudhary, had written to party chairwoman Sonia Gandhi, asking for disciplinary action against Navjot Sidhu for trying to “present himself above the party”.
