“I have not resigned from BJP,” Kaur said.
When asked about Navjot Singh Sidhu, she said: “It’s understood that he has resigned.”
The Sidhus are expected to join the Aam Aadmi Party after being reportedly upset over the BJP alliance with the Akali Dal in Punjab.

Last year, Sidhu and his wife were said to have made up their mind to leave the BJP. But the central leadership’s intervention stopped him.
