Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned as head of the Punjab Congress Committee Thursday, sparking a wave of social media backlash. The state Congress has been wracked by infighting for months, and Twitter users are still reeling from the deluge that was former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh's departure. Sidhu is believed to be dissatisfied with the appointment of corruption-accused Rana Gurjeet Singh to the cabinet of new Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and his failure to be considered for the Chief Ministerial seat despite a public challenge to Amarinder Singh.

Twitter is the place to be on any given day if you want to hear about political hot takes. Thus memes about Sidhu's move are inevitably sweeping over the microblogging network. They vary from the fractious Punjab Congress scene to Kapil Sharma's comedy show, of which Sidhu was a former president. According to netizens, Archana Puran Singh is the most 'unhappy' person following Navjot's resignation, citing that her chair is now in jeopardy.

Let's take a look at how netizens reacted to the news:
