Navjot Singh Sidhu’s adviser Malwinder Singh Mali quits amid row over controversial remarks

Malwinder Singh Mali, one of the two advisors of Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, resigned on Friday amid row over his recent controversial remarks.

In a letter to Sidhu, Mali said that he withdrew his consent given for tendering suggestions to Navjot Singh Sidhu. 

“I withdraw my consent given for tendering suggestions to Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu,” wrote Malwinder Singh Mali while quitting as an advisor to Sidhu.

He further stated, “In case of any harm against me, Captain Amarinder Singh, Punjab’s cabinet minister, Vijender Singh, Punjab’s MP Manish Tewari, Punjab’s Former deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal, former cabinet minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia and BJP’s Subhash Sharma, Aam Aadmi Party’s Raghav Chadha and Jarnail Singh will be responsible,”

Mali’s recent posts on Jammu and Kashmir and Capt Amarinder Singh and his supporters kicked off a major row.

Mali’s resignation comes a day after Congress high command has asked Punjab Congress Chief to remove his controversial advisors, Malwinder Singh Mali and Pyare Lal Garg.
