It's confirmed! Navjot Singh Sidhu not joining Congress; wife targets Amarinder Singh, says we want to shake the system
It's final, the former Bharatiya Janata Party MP Navjot Singh Sidhu, is not joining Congress.
Chandigarh: It's final, the former Bharatiya Janata Party MP Navjot Singh Sidhu, is not joining Congress.
This was made evident by none other than Sidhu's wife Navjot Kaur, 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 third party is a clear indication that there are no chances of Sidhu joining the grand 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.
Sidhu, who resigned from the Rajya Sabha 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 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ahead of the crucial assembly elections in Punjab.
However, those talks had reportedly faltered on a few demands that Sidhu made, though Delhi chief minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal clarified that his party is waiting for the 52-year-old commentator to take a decision.
AAP national convener Kejriwal had then publicly welcomed Sidhu’s decision to quit Rajya Sabh and expressed his hoped that the latter’s presence could be used to accelerate AAP’s campaign in Punjab.
