Navjot Singh Sidhu says his 'Aawaaz-E-Punjab' not a political party

Navjot Singh Sidhu said he was open to any alliance for the betterment of Punjab.

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday said his ‘Aawaaz-E-Punjab’ will not be a political party.

However, the former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP said that his forum is ready for any alliance for the betterment of Punjab.

Sidhu quit the BJP last month following differences with the party’s top leadership over the alliance with Shiromani Akali Dal for the upcoming Assembly elections.

His resignation triggered widespread clamours that he along with his wife would join Aam Aadmi Party led by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

However, he formally launched ‘Aawaaz-E-Punjab’ on September 8, saying he would work for the resurrection of Punjab.
