Navjot Sidhu is with us, his wife is with us: Captain Amarinder Singh

New Delhi: Clearing ambiguity over Navjot Singh Sidhu’s next move, Punjab Congress President Captain Amarinder said, ‘Sidhu is with us, his wife is with us. He does not want to fight from any seat but will campaign with us’.

Earlier, ending speculation, former BJP leader Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu and Awaaz-E-Punjab leader Pargat Singh announced they will formally join the Congress on November 28, while her husband is also likely to follow suit.
“I am pleased to announce that Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu and Pargat Singh will be formally joining Congress on November 28,” Captain Amarinder said.

Kaur, wife of former cricketer and Awaaz-e-Punjab chief Navjot Singh Sidhu and Pargat Singh met the Congress high command here to seal the deal, a statement from Amarinder said.

Sources said the two met Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today and decided to join the party fold. The two later met Amarinder Singh at his residence here and discussed the formalities of their joining.

Party sources said Sidhu was away in Mumbai and was likely to meet the Congress leadership in the days to come and likely to join along with his wife and Pargat Singh on November 28.

Kaur, wife of former cricketer and Awaaz-e-Punjab chief Navjot Singh Sidhu and Pargat Singh met the Congress high command here to seal the deal, a statement from Amarinder said.

Sidhu along with Pargat and the Bains brothers had recently formed an outfit Awaaz-e-Punjab, but was not ready to go out alone in Punjab polls and has expressed its desire to align with like-minded parties.

The Bains brothers Simarjit and Balwinder Singh, both of whom were independent MLAs from Ludhiana, have since tied up with AAP .
