On Thursday, the Aam Aadmi Party reacted at Awaaz-e-Punjab’s founder Navjot Singh Sidhu’s claimed that the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal wanted only Navjot Kaur Sidhu, Sidhu’s wife, to contest for the upcoming Punjab elections, claiming that it was the the former BJP leader who recommended the idea to the party.
“The people of Punjab should also know that when I met Navjot Singh Sidhu, he said that he will not be selfish person to fight on his wife’s seat, and since according to the AAP’s policy stating that only one member from a family can fight elections, he wanted his wife to contest. In fact, he proposed the idea to the party and even said that he would stand with AAP in its fight against the injustice. Today, he has completely changed his comments, surprised to hear his statement,” AAP leader Sanjay Singh told the media.
While addressing a press conference in Chandigarh, Sidhu told the media that Kejriwal told him not to fight elections and insted asked him to ask wife wife to contest for seat, claiming that in return he said that ‘you only want ‘Yes’ men.’
Explaining his reason behind resigning the Rajya Sabha seat, Sidhu said that it had nothing to do with Kejriwal. “When I went to the Rajya Sabha’s chairman Hamid Ansari, he was shocked and told me that has never seen anyone doing this,” he added.
