BJP Rajya Sabha MP Navjot Singh Sidhu resigns, likely to join AAP


Senior Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leader and nominated Rajya Sabha MP Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from  the Upper House on Monday. The former Indian cricketer was asked to make way for Arun Jaitley to fight from his constituency Amritsar during the 2014 General Elections.

Sources close to Sidhu have told Indian Express that he might be joining the Aam Aadmi Party. Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur, a Parliamentary Secretary in Punjab SAD-BJP govt, may also resign, say sources.

AAP has been campaigning in Punjab for the upcoming assembly elections in 2017.
