Earlier, Harish Rawat had asked party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu to remove his advisors Malwinder Singh Mali and Pyare Lal Garg.
Hours after AICC Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat asked Sidhu to remove his two controversial advisors, Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu’s advisor Malwinder Singh Mali has quit.
Malwinder Singh Mali, while quitting as an advisor to Sidhu on Friday, said: “I withdraw my consent given for tendering suggestions to Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu.”
Earlier, Harish Rawat had asked party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu to remove his advisors Malwinder Singh Mali and Pyare Lal Garg over their continued criticism of CM Amarinder Singh and his aides for the last few weeks.
Malwinder Singh Mali kicked a major row after his Facebook posts on sensitive issues as well as personal attacks on Captain Amarinder Singh and his supporters.
Captain Amarinder Singh had termed the statements of Sidhu’s aides as ‘atrocious’, ‘ill conceived’ and ‘anti-national’.
After Mali shared a controversial sketch of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, their statements also gave ammunition to the opposition parties Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and BJP who reminded the Congress of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
