Arvind Kejriwal wanted Navjot Singh to lead Sidhu Punjab, claims Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur

Chandigarh: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife, Navjot Kaur, said on Friday that her husband had “gifted” the chief minister’s seat to Bhagwant Mann, claiming that Arvind Kejriwal once wanted the former cricketer to lead Punjab but he opted out not to betray his party. Her claims came in the background of a war of words between Mann and Navjot Sidhu.

In a series of tweets, Kaur said, “CM, Bhagwant Mann; today let me reveal a hidden secret of your treasure hunt. You should know that the very honorable chair you hold has been bestowed on you by your big brother, Mr. Navjot Sidhu. Your own senior leader would have wanted Navjot to lead Punjab”.
She alleged that AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal had approached Sidhu through various channels to head the state.

Punjab went to the polls in February 2022 and after the AAP landslide victory, Bhagwant Mann became the prime minister. “Mr Kejriwal approached him through various channels to lead Punjab, knowing his passion for our state. Just because he did not want to betray his party and thought that two stubborn people might clash when it comes to strategy to elevate Punjab, did he give you a chance,” Kaur claimed.

She further said that Sidhu’s only concern is the welfare of Punjab and he has sacrificed everything for it. “You enter the path of the TRUTH and he will support you but the moment you deviate he will attack you left and right. The golden Punjab state is his dream and he is living it 24 hours a day,” she said in another tweet.
Mann had attacked opposition parties on Sunday ahead of their rally in Jalandhar in support of the editor of a Punjabi daily who was under the vigilance scanner.

In response, Navjot Sidhu had said, “Those who make democracy a vigilance system by order of Delhi, those who run Punjab like remote-controlled pawns” now indulged in moral sermons.”

Several leaders across party lines had gathered at the office of the Punjabi newspaper ‘Ajit’ in Jalandhar on June 1 to rally behind the editor-in-chief Barjinder Singh Hamdard, who is under surveillance by the bureau’s scanner for alleged abuse of funds in the construction of Rs 315-crore Jang-E-Azadi memorial in Jalandhar.
