Badal will be happy if Sidhu and I leave Punjab: Navjot Kaur
(2 years ago)
Amritsar (Punjab), July 19 : Cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu's wife said on Tuesday that Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal would be happy if she and her husband left the state, adding that he cannot accept any person working better than his son.
"His intentions were clear from the very beginning. People will come to know his intentions now. Leave the resignation; he will be very happy if I and my husband leave Punjab. Leave us, anyone who wants to do well for Punjab or wants to rise above his son, he cannot accept that. He will not accept any person who can work better than his children," Navjot Kaur Sidhu told ANI here.
"If he would have really treated me like his daughter then he would have come to my constituency and seen the agony of my people, when I needed him. People elected me and made me MLA, I can't just go," she added.
Navjot Kaur earlier today said that Navjot Sidhu was not ready for any other option other than to serve Punjab.
She, however, also clarified that she hasn't resigned from the BJP.
"He has resigned from the Rajya Sabha.it means the same that he has resigned from the BJP. I haven't resigned from the party. It was his decision. His vision and mentality is very clear that he wants to serve Punjab. He was not ready for any other option other than Punjab. The party was very clear that they want to work with Akali Dal, so that was the only choice left for him that he wants to serve Punjab," she told ANI.
Responding to a poser on whether Sidhu will now join the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Navjot said that he would make his stand clear in this regard very soon before the media.
Navjot further said that Sidhu always wanted that the BJP top brass impose their trust on him, adding that he wanted to serve Punjab.
According to reports, Sidhu, who resigned from the Rajya Sabha, might join the AAP in Punjab.
The former cricketer, who was thrice the Lok Sabha member from the BJP, was asked to step away from contesting the polls in Amritsar during the 2014 general election to make way for fellow member Arun Jaitley.
