Punjab power and irrigation minister Rana Gurjit Singh, who has been in the midst of controversy due to sand mine auctions and the enforcement directorate’s summons to his son, has resigned from the state cabinet.

Rana Gurjit handed over his resignation to chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh. “A week ago, I met the chief minister and offered to resign from the state cabinet,” he said. The chief minister is yet to accept his resignation.

Rana Gurjit said he was in politics because of Amarinder Singh and the government was being attacked daily. “When the issue of notice by the enforcement directorate to my son’s company came, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) again started levelling allegations. The company’s managing director (Rana Gurjit’s son) has the right to respond. As a disciplined member of the party, I cannot let them run a smear campaign against my party’s government and gave the resignation to the chief minister,” he said.
