Liberal MP Raj Grewal is citing “personal and medical reasons” for his decision to quit federal politics, according to a posting on his Facebook page.

“Yesterday, I informed the Chief Government Whip that I will be resigning my seat as Member of Parliament for Brampton East due to personal and medical reasons,” he said in the posting.

“To the people of Brampton East, serving as your MP has been the greatest privilege of my life. This has been a decision I’ve struggled with for some time now and one I made with great difficulty and real sadness. But I feel I need this time to focus on my health and family.”
