In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Mali said, "I humbly submit that I withdraw my consent given for tendering suggestions to Navjot Singh Sidhu".Mali said in a separate Facebook post that the issue of his resignation did not arise because he never accepted the position. Mali stated in a Punjabi post that he has neither accepted nor resigned from any position. In the midst of a power struggle in Punjab,

Chief Minister Amarinder Singh told Sidhu on Sunday to "rein in" his advisers after two of them made "atrocious" comments on Kashmir and Pakistan recently. Harish Rawat, the AICC general secretary in charge of Punjab affairs, has also stated that the two advisers must go.Sidhu appointed Mali, a former government teacher and political analyst, and Pyare Lal Garg, a former registrar of Baba Farid University of Health and Sciences, as his advisers on August 11 in order to seek their advice.Mali recently addressed the subject of removal of Article 370 of the Constitution, which granted special status to the former state of Jammu and Kashmir, in a social media post.
