Amritsar, April 11: Former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, who recently was forced to make early exit from TV reality show Bigg Boss over party works, may resign as BJP MP soon. Speculations over Sidhu's resignation surfaced following a post on Facebook which was written by his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu.

Mrs Sidhu, while writing on her Facebook wall, said, "How can you let an honest leader survive? One who does not believe in corruption, does not support criminals, does not become party to commission system, what good can he do to party?"

"So, finally you pair up to push him aside, make him feel suffocated in the system," added Mrs Sidhu while igniting speculations regarding her husband's resignation as a politician.

Mrs Sidhu also clarified the stand taken by her husband who now seems to have switched over to doing television shows. She said the former cricketer was sidelined as a BJP MP.

While asked on her post on the social networking site, Mrs Sidhu said, "Since the past six months, I've been listening that my husband Sidhu is keeping away from the system, he's not working for the system. Being in the system, one must have the liberty to choose your people and if you can't do so, the system suffocates you."

Earlier Mrs Sidhu embarrassed BJP after endorsing Rahul Gandhi. Mrs Sidhu had sought a report published by World Health Organisation (WHO) supporting the controversial statement made by All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary on Punjab youths.

Endorsing the young Gandhi family scion, Mrs Sidhu said, "In Punjab, 60 to 70 per cent youth are drug addict. I have proof of this. I am not saying this, World Health Organisation report is saying this."

While addressing a rally in Punjab, Rahul had stated, "what is happening to human resources in Punjab. 7 out of 10 youth have the problem of drugs," and also added, "you (youths in Punjab) have to run this country. You have the power and the knowledge to run it. We want you to come to politics, cleanse it and change it."

However, his statement invited criticism including state political parties. The Akalis even had asked Rahul and his brother-in-law Robert Vadra to undergo dope test.
