“If Sidhu does not want to do this work, I can’t do anything about it,” said Captain Amarinder.


The day after Najot Singh Sidhu decided to leave the Cabinet
of Ministers of Punjab, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh
said on Monday that if he did not want to do his job, Singh would
not be able to do anything about it. The minister was supposed
to adopt his new portfolio instead of avoiding work in the middle
of the decisive season of Paddy, the chief minister said.

Responding to a question about how a soldier can refuse to work
appointed by the general, Amarinder added that there must be
discipline in the government so that it can function effectively.


Noting that after re-election to the Lok Sabha, he reorganized the
portfolios of 13 out of 17 ministers in his office, Amarinder said
that Sidhu was the only member who had problems. He also
added that the decision on personnel changes was made on the
basis of the results of the work of the ministers, and Sidhu should
have taken his new department.

Sidhu received the most important Power portfolio, which was
particularly important at this time in connection with the Paddy
season, from June to October. According to the chief minister,
due to the fact that many areas of Punjab do not receive enough
rainfall, the situation with electricity is critical and requires daily


When asked whether Sidhu made any attempt at reconciliation,
the Chief Minister replied that there was no need for that. “I have
no problem with him. If Sidhu has any problems with me, you
need to ask him about them, ”he said. However, he explained
that he did not see any harm in the fact that the minister had
sent his documents directly to the President of Congress, since
the government’s decision was made in consultation with the
high command of the party. However, he added that he was
informed that the letter of resignation had been sent to his
residence in Chandigarh, but he had not yet seen it.


The Chief Minister was in New Delhi and paid a courtesy visit to
Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Singh took the opportunity to
discuss the celebration of the 550th anniversary of the birth of
Guru Nanak. “The Prime Minister confirmed his participation in
this grand event and assured of all possible assistance to make
the program a grandiose, relevant historical event,” said the Chief
Minister. Inherited problem of food debt of Rs. 31,000 crore was
also discussed, and the prime minister said he was informed
about it.
