Navjot Singh Sidhu on January 16 formally joined the Congress Party an asserted that he was a born Congressman and was only going back to his roots.

“This is my Ghar wapsi. I am a born Congressman and I have only come back home. This is new innings for me. New team for me. ” said Sidhu while getting inducted in the Congress party. While affirming that he would “bowl” out the Badals governing in the state of Punjab, Sidhu said that we can’t have ostrich mentality and that we can’t ignore the drug menace in the state.

He further urged the Badals to “run” as the people of the state is bracing themselves for a new government.

While speaking about his relation and alleged spat with Capt Amarinder Singh, Sidhu affirmed, “that if two nations can resolves their issues why can’t two individuals.”

However, the cricketer-turned politician avoided to comment on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Sidhu who quit BJP in the month of September said that he did not want to run away from his responsibilities towards Punjab.

Putting an end to all the speculations, cricketer-turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu joined the Congress Party on January 15 months ahead of the upcoming Punjab Assembly elections. Earlier this month, Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife, Navjot Kaur Sidhu who had also joined Congress had asserted that Sidhu might contest elections from Amritsar East.

Meanwhile PArkash Singh Badal took a jibe at Sidhu and said, “These are all migratory birds. The poeple of Punjab are aware who worked worked for them.”

Also, Bikram Majithia belonging to the Shiromani Akali Dal said that it was difficult to take Sidhu seriously as people cannot forget the comments he had made against Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and even former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
