Sidhu evades questions on Gadkari
Mumbai: Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, who quit Bigg Boss reality show to campaign for Gujarat Assembly Elections, on Saturday parried questions on his party president Nitin Gadkari.
The BJP MP was a contestant on the reality show `Bigg Boss` that started from October 7. His wife had called Colors channel, on which the show is aired, to allow her husband to quit the show as Gadkari had requested that Sidhu was required to campaign for the party ahead of the Gujarat polls.
When asked whether he felt that Gadkari was looking for support from his partymen following charges of corruption, Sidhu said, "Next question please... I am not going to reply on this."
In response to a question on what kind of difference his presence would make during the Gujarat poll-campaign, Sidhu said, "I am here as I was asked to campaign for Gujarat elections. It is the party that gave me name and recognition. The party never forces anyone... They just asked me to come (for campaigning)."
Earlier, Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam, who was part of previous season of the show, also had to leave the `Bigg Boss` house within a week.
On being asked if `Bigg Boss` was not meant for the politicians, Sidhu said, "It is not like that."
Sidhu clarified that he did not go on the reality show to compete with anyone. "I did not go on the show to compete with anyone. I was not competing with anyone. I was my own competition," he said.
