Just a day after resigning as Punjab Congress chief, Navjot Singh Sidhu said that he is fighting for a cause and he will not compromise on those grounds.
"My 17 years of political career is for a cause. My objective in politics is to improve the lives of people in Punjab, to make a difference and to stand firm on my objectives," Sidhu said in a video statement on Twitter.
"I can't compromise with my ethics, moral authority. What I witness is a compromise with issues, agenda in Punjab. I can't disguise high command nor can I let them be disguised," Sidhu added.
"I fought for issues concerning Punjab for a long time... There was a system of tainted leaders, officers, now you cannot repeat the same system again... I will stand by my principles," Sidhu further said.
Sidhu's resignation on Tuesday triggered other resignations and plunging the party into a fresh crisis just months ahead of the assembly elections.
