"For my family, my friends and of my constituents, I am sorry that I disappointed you. You're kaatoinut me so much time, energy and love. Constituencies and my colleagues believe in good faith to serve. I enjoy my work, every minute. But recently, I knew that I could no longer serve my constituencies for the best of my ability because of my personal problem, so I decided to take some time to treat my health, "he wrote and asked for privacy.
The statement by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Office also clarified that Grewal resigned in search of gambling management that "led to significant personal debts".
Trudeau supported Grewal's decision and tweeted: "Yesterday (Thursday) I learned that Raj Grewal faces serious personal challenges, and today he announced that he would go to Brampton East as a member of parliament, although it would have been a difficult decision, and that he was right. . "
FREE OF CHARGE FOR LIBERALS
The transition is a setback to the Punjab diaspora and the Trudeau group in the Canadian Baltic Sea Region, as Grewal, who arrives from the village of Sarabh in Ludhiana, was already a Liberal Democrat candidate for the 2019 federal election. Trudeau now has to ask for a bypoll before the difference in making a difference.
Grewal, who had entered the Canadian Regional Portal on October 19, 2015, made his first announcement on Thursday night on Facebook, referring to "personal and medical" causes. At the same time, he said he hoped he could once again represent his constituency.
