Barnala (Punjab), July 19 (IANS) With the resignation of cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu from the Rajya Sabha giving a new turn to politics in Punjab, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Tuesday said that the state’s people would never forgive “opportunist and treacherous political leaders who ditch their mother party for the sake of short term benefits”.

Responding to the resignation by Sidhu, Badal said that the leaders without any principles could never succeed in the politics as the Punjabis have strong disliking for them.

He said that Sidhu’s resignation would hardly impact the Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party alliance in Punjab.

The chief minister said that he had not yet received the resignation of Chief Parliamentary Secretary Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who is the wife of Sidhu.
