MORE THAN a month after Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned seeking the ouster of Advocate General A P S Deol and DGP I P S Sahota, the government Tuesday buckled. At a joint press conference with Sidhu, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi announced that Deol’s resignation had been accepted.
