Victory for Navjot Singh Sidhu : Punjab CM Channi accepts Advocate General APS Deol’s resignation

APS Deol had submitted his resignation on November 1 after being constantly attacked by PPCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, on Tuesday, accepted the resignation of Attorney General APS Deol. The crucial decision was taken during the Punjab cabinet meeting earlier in the day. 

Deol had submitted his resignation on November 1 after being constantly attacked by the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Ever since Deol took the charge of Punjab Advocate General, Sidhu has been raising aspersions and questioning his appointment. Deol was a counsel for former director general of police Sumedh Singh Saini in the 2015 post sacrilege police firing incidents.

Earlier this month, Deol accused Sidhu of obstructing the functioning of Punjab government and his office as well as “spreading misinformation to gain political advantage”.

Sidhu later slammed Deol accusing him of interfering with the work of the Punjab Government and spreading misinformation.

The PPCC chief also alleged that Deol prayed for transferring the investigation to CBI as he was afraid of their false implication in sacrilege cases on accounts of malafide, malice and ulterior motives on the part of the political party in power in the state of Punjab.
