Chandigarh: A BJP MLA in Punjab has resigned
from the post of the party's Chief Parliamentary Secretary
citing health reasons.
Jagdish Sawhney, who represents the Batala seat in the
state assembly has sent his resignation letter to state party

the recently concluded budget session of the state assembly on
issues pertaining to his constituency.

are no differences among BJP leaders in the state. Sawhney had
told me he was unwell and as such will not be able to carry
on with the responsibilities of CPS."

geared up for party Chief Sonia Gandhi's visit to Amritsar on
April 13 on the occasion of the party's 125th anniversary
