President of India Droupadi Murmu has accepted the resignation of Punjab cadre IAS officer Parampal Kaur Sidhu.

This clears the way for Parampal Kaur Sidhu, 2011 batch IAS officer and daughter-in-law of Akali Dal leader Sikandar Singh Maluka to contest the Lok Sabha election, scheduled for June 1.

BJP has fielded her from Bathinda.

Earlier, Sidhu had applied for VRS from the Indian Administrative Service in April and the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) of the Union government had formally relieved her. However, the state government rejected her request for the VRS for allegedly “falsifying” grounds and asked her to resume her duties.

While initially she refused to join duty, saying she was “not a servant of government for life”, Sidhu later, apprehending that she may face problems in getting a no-due certificate for government dues for filling her nominations, tendered a fresh resignation from IAS on May 8.
