Navjot Singh Sidhu today launched the new political front ‘Awaaz-e-Punjab’. He said the front has been set up for “resurrection, redemption and revival of Punjab which is in dire straits.” Talking to reporters he said that the Government should be for the people but in Punjab it is not the case as “it is only about one family.”
Pointing out that good people should come forward and join politics, the cricketer-turned-politician said, “There is a tradition in India that good people are kept as decoration pieces and used only for campaigning.” Sidhu launched an attack on Badal family which is ruling the state at present, Sidhu said that the state is languishing under Badals.
Sidhu said that he was was given extravagant offers but refused. Sidhu also took a dig at the BJP.
Revealing what happened during his talks with AAP, Sidhu said that Kejriwal had offered a seat to his wife but asked him not to contest. The former cricketer also said that his resignation from the Rajya Sabha Sidhu had nothing to do AAP chief Kejriwal.
Sidhu said that he would share the details of next course of action of the Awaaz-e-Punjab after 15 days. “At this stage, Awaaz-e-Punjab is not a party. It is a forum of like-minded people who wants to see a prosperous Punjab once again.”
