The resignation came as a big surprise to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which shares power with the Shiromani Akali Dal in Punjab. The state is expected to go to the polls early next year.

Reacting to the development, AAP leader Sanjay Singh told TV channels: "We welcome the resignation of Sidhu from Rajya Sabha. For other queries you have, it's all premature."
Sanjay Singh also said the resignation of the cricketer-turned-politician from the Upper House is seen as a "protest" against the ongoing Akali-BJP dispensation in Punjab.
"All right minded people should join this dharam yudh (righteous battle) against corruption," the AAP leader said.
AAP is seen as a contender for power in Punjab.
"I think to make a better Punjab, Navjot Singh ji has taken this step. This will save Punjab," said AAP Leader Sanjay Singh to ANI. On asking whether Sidhu is joining the party or not, he said when the time is right a formal announcement will be made.
However, he further said that people can expect that Sidhu will join the side of "dharma" in the fight against "adharma".
