This is how Arvind Kejriwal reacted after Navjot Singh Sidhu revealed why he quit Rajya Sabha

New Delhi: Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday said he relinquished his Rajya Sabha membership as he was repeatedly being "asked to stay away from Punjab" which he was not prepared to do.

After his press conference, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Earlier in the day, Sidhu told reporters: "I resigned from Rajya Sabha because I was told to not turn towards Punjab and stay away from Punjab... Why should I stay away from Punjab and on whose wishes.”

 

"Rashtra dharma (duty towards the nation) is the most superior. How could I ignore my roots and betray my homeland? Should I stay away from Punjab just to cater to personal interests of some people," he added.

Siddhu, however, did not elaborate on his future plans as he did not disclose whether he was joining the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) or desired to be Punjab`s chief ministerial candidate.
