Sangrur: With Lok Sabha elections over, the discontentment in Punjab Congress came to the fore as PPCC former General Secretary Arvind Khanna, a close aide of senior party leader Amarinder Singh, today resigned as MLA from Dhuri Assembly segment of Sangrur parliamentary seat.
Khanna in a Facebook post said that he has sent his resignation to the Speaker of the State Assembly.
He, however, did not clarify whether he will resign from the primary membership of Congress.
In the post, he said the time has come for him “to step away from politics.”
On speculation of joining SAD, Khanna said he did not do so as Amarinder Singh was announced Congress nominee for Amritsar Lok Sabha seat and his decision would have had adverse effect on the former Chief Minister's prospects.
