Chandigarh: Union Minister for Food Processing Industry Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Thursday said Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh had proved he was a master cook by cooking up a resignation drama that never was.
In a statement here, Harsimrat said Amarinder went ballistic crying crocodile tears and claiming he was resigning immediately after the apex court adjudged on the issue of presidential reference. “It is one week since the order was pronounced but Amarinder has still not sent the resignation letter in the required format,” she said.
The minister said it was strange that an educated person like the PPCC president, who liked to be projected as an expert on all subjects from cookery to history, had tried to befool everyone by announcing he had submitted his resignation. “The truth is that Amarinder has sent an e-mail in which he has claimed that he is resigning from Parliament in protest against the apex court order on the SYL canal. The PPCC chief must surely know that all resignation letters need to be hand delivered and need to be verified by the Speaker through personal audience,” she added.
The Bathinda MP said there was nothing new in this behaviour although it would seem bizarre to Punjabis who saw him crying hoarse about his resignation on their television screens. DP
