Chandigarh, Jan 16: Following allegations of corruption and money laundering against him, Punjab’s powerful cabinet minister Ra Gurjit Singh has submitted his resigtion from the Congress government in the state. However, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh is yet to accept the resigtion, government sources said on Tuesday. Sources in the Punjab Congress told that Amarinder Singh is likely to meet Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday to discuss the resigtion issue and expansion of his cabinet. Ra Gurjit Singh, who is the Irrigation and Power Minister, has courted controversies in the past few months in the multi-crore sand mining auctions done in the 10-month-old Amarinder Singh government.
