Cong Leader “Gifted” Punjab CM Chair to Mann, According to Navjot Sidhu’s Wife, and Here’s Why

The former cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu had the opportunity to become the Chief Minister of Punjab, but he “gifted” the position to Bhagwant Mann of the AAP because he would not “betray” the Congress, according to Navjot Kaur, the grand old party leader’s wife, on Friday.

Her comments occurred as opposition parties gathered in Jalandhar to support the editor of a Punjabi newspaper who was under surveillance, and while Mann and Navjot Sidhu were involved in a verbal spat.

Navjot Kaur continued by claiming that Arvind Kejriwal, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), previously wanted the former cricketer to be the leader of Punjab, but he choose not to desert his party.In Punjab’s 2022 Assembly elections, the AAP won by a wide margin.

“CM, Bhagwant Mann; let me today open out a hidden secret from your treasure hunt,” Kaur said in a string of tweets. You should be aware that your elder brother, Mr. Navjot Sidhu, gave you the really honorable chair you are sitting in. Your own seniormost leader wanted Navjot to be in charge of Punjab.

 

Before the state assembly elections in 2017, Navjot Sidhu joined the Congress after leaving the BJP in September 2016.

Kaur said that Navjot Sidhu gave Mann a chance because he believed that two strong-willed individuals may dispute about how to best elevate Punjab.

“Kejriwal reached him through a number of ways after learning of his love for our state and his desire to lead Punjab. He just gave you a chance because he didn’t want to betray his party and believed that two brazen individuals would disagree on how to best elevate Punjab, Kaur stated.

She continued by saying that Sidhu has given up everything for Punjab’s wellbeing, which is his primary priority. “If you stay on the road of TRUTH, he will back you, but if you stray, he will attack you from all sides. He lives his goal of a golden Punjab state 24 hours a day, she said in a another tweet.

On Sunday, Mann blasted opposition parties for assembling in Jalandhar to support the editor of a Punjabi newspaper who was being watched by security officials.

In response, Navjot Sidhu had stated: “Those who make democracy a vigilance system at the behest of Delhi, those who run Punjab as pawns with remote control” were now engaging in moral bluster.

On June 1, a number of leaders from various political parties gathered at the Jalandhar office of the Punjabi newspaper “Ajit” to support its editor-in-chief Barjinder Singh Hamdard, who is being investigated by the vigilance bureau for alleged financial mismanagement related to the construction of the Rs 315 crore Jang-E-Azadi memorial.
