The Hush Post: After being ignored for a cabinet berth, Tanda Urmur MLA of Punjab Sangat Singh Gilzian has resigned from the posts of AICC membership and vice-president of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC).
He resigned from the party posts in a video message and said that he was let down after the party’s decision of ignoring his claim for ministerial berth.
He said he had taken this decision as the party had failed to represent the backward classes and that he belonged. He is a three-time MLA and has contested four elections to the Vidhan Sabha. Gilzian said he would continue to serve people of his constituency as the MLA.
He said: “What to talk of inducting me in the cabinet, even my junior was not inducted. Backward classes have 27% of the votes in Punjab and not even a single MLA representing them was made a minister,” he said. “Now I do not have any right to hold positions in the party. I will continue to serve my people as MLA.”
