Amarinder-Sidhu controversy – Sidhu seeks Guv Badnore’s intervention to resolve constitutional crisis

Chandigarh,  July 8, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Bharatiya Janata Party has sought the intervention of Punjab Governor VP Singh Badnore to get the constitutional crisis arising out of long absence of Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Tarun Chugh, the national secretary of the party has shot off a letter to the Governor stating that Sidhu, whose department was changed during a reshuffle of portfolios by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, has not assumed his charge as Power Minister even as a period of more than a month has passed.

The differences between the Chief Minister and the Minister have led to a constitutional crisis which needs to be looked into at the earliest, Chugh said.

Terming the development as ‘unfortunate’, Chugh said Sidhu has not risen to the occasion and has chosen to shun responsibility as a Cabinet Minister.

The BJP leader said, “Since the Minister has gone ‘underground’ and is incommunicado and has willfully chosen not to take charge of his new assignment, the work related to his department was suffering like anything.”

Chugh pointed out that Sidhu was enjoying all the perks and facilities of a cabinet minister but was reluctant to serve and as such was behaving in a manner which was not expected of a minister whose department requires his attention the most at this time. “The people of the state and particularly the farmers were facing hardships as Power Department remains unattended due to the absence of the minister,” he said.

Chugh requested the Governor to take stock of the situation as he was the Constitutional Head of the state.
