(Chd,Pb)Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi Leaves Ruling Congress
Senior Congress leader and former Punjab Minister Sodhi on Tuesday resigned from the party, saying he was “deeply hurt by the bickering and in-fighting” within its state unit. Sodhi, who is the MLA from Guruharsahai in Ferozepur district, was the sports minister in the state government led by Amarinder Singh, who quit as chief minister in September and left the Congress in November.
In his letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Sodhi said he was “deeply hurt by the bickering and in-fighting within the Punjab Congress”.
I feel suffocated and helpless in the present situation especially when the party has put state’s security and communal harmony at stake. Rather than taking action to restore peace in Punjab, senior Congress leadership is hell-bent on destroying the border state for their personal gains, he wrote.
Sodhi ,who Spent Four Decades in the Party ,was dropped as the minister after Charanjit Singh Channi took over as the chief minister.
