Union food processing industry minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Saturday thanked Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh for admitting that he was yet to resign from the Lok Sabha.

“It is good that Amarinder has owned up to the fact that he had forwarded a sham resignation on e-mail and that he had been asked to submit the same in the correct format which he had failed to do,” the Bathinda MP said in a statement.

“It did not even take you an hour after the apex court verdict on the Presidential reference to announce you were resigning as an MP. But you have failed to submit your resignation to the Lok Sabha speaker despite being in Delhi for quite some time during this period,” the Union minister said.

The Bathinda MP said it appeared that Amarinder had developed cold feet after announcing his resignation. “What else explains his inability to go to Parliament and put in his papers?” she asked.
