Senior Bhartiya Janata Party leader MP Navjot Singh Sidhu has reportedly resigned as Rajya Sabha MP today.
Sidhu, former Indian cricketer, commentator and former Lok Sabha MP from Amritsar, had vacated his seat for Arun Jaitley.
Sidhu may join the Aam Aadmi Party, sources close to him have told the Indian Express. The move comes at a time when the AAP is aggressively campaigning in Punjab for 2017 assembly polls.
Sidhu was MP from Amritsar from 2004 to 2014. His wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu is also a senior BJP leader and a minister in Punjab cabinet.
