Mr Sidhu, who was appointed as the President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) on July 23, resigned just before former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh's visit to the national capital.
Mr Sidhu, in his letter to interim Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, stated, "The collapse of a man's character stems from the compromise corner, I can never compromise on Punjab''s future and the agenda for the welfare of Punjab. Therefore, I hereby resign as the President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. Will continue to serve the Congress."
