The Punjab Congress chief says that Sidhu has Congress in his DNA as his father was a general secretary of the party and still remains a member.

Sources further said that Sidhu recently held a meeting with Delhi Chief Minister-cum-AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal, which the party refused to acknowledge. Ever since he quit the BJP and resigned from the Rajya Sabha, there has been speculations that Sidhu may join the Aam Aadmi Party and may even be fielded as its chief ministerial candidate.

Navjot Singh Sidhu, who recently resigned from the Bharatiya Janata Party recently, need not worry much about which political camp he should join ahead of Punjab Assembly elections. All he needs to do is understand what is in his DNA, according to Congress chief in the state Amarinder Singh. NDTV reports Singh as saying that Sidhu has Congress in his DNA as his father was a general secretary of the party and still remains a member.

Singh said that Congress’ doors are always open for the former cricketer, should he ever wish to join. Ever since he quit the BJP and resigned from the Rajya Sabha, there has been speculations that Sidhu may join the Aam Aadmi Party and may even be fielded as its chief ministerial candidate. However, Sidhu has so far surprised everyone by not making it open as to where he is heading.

According to reports, Sidhu’s talks with AAP leadership has not reached any conclusion. However, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has said his party is waiting for Sidhu to make up his mind and join the party.

Earlier, it was also rumoured that the NDA government at the Centre may appoint the former cricketer as an ambassador to Canada. It seems all doors are open for Sidhu. But perhaps the part-time comedian wants to keep everyone guessing his fate. May be, he knows he will have the last laugh.
