Sidhu Not joining Congress, Wife Targets Amarinder Singh
Navjot Singh Sidhu, who resigned from the RajyaSabha as a BJP leader on July 18, was likely to join AAP on August 12. Since then, Sidhu has been in talks to join the AamAadmi Party ahead of the crucial assembly elections in Punjab.
The former BJP MP, Sidhu made it clear that the probability of him joining Congress, is minimal. This was made evident by none other than his wife, Navjot Kaur Sidhu who targeted Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh saying, if he had been honest to his party and the people of Punjab, there would’ve been no vacuum left in Punjab to be filled by a third party. Kaur’s reference to the third party could be an indication of zero chances of Sidhu joining the old party. “People will see us with the party which is ready to have honest leaders for Punjab. Mr Amarinder Singh, we want to shake the system, which has ruined the state”, Kaur said.
AAP national convener Kejriwal had then publicly welcomed Sidhu’s decision to quit Rajya Sabha and expressed his hoped that the latter’s presence could be used to accelerate AAP’s campaign in Punjab.
