Lok Sabha Election 2019

My wife never lies, says Navjot Singh Sidhu

Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday defended his wife’s remarks blaming the Congress leadership for denying her ticket from Amritsar. “My wife has that much strength and moral authority that she will never lie. This is my answer,” Mr. Sidhu told presspersons when asked about his wife’s allegations that she was denied party ticket from Amritsar at the instance of Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and party’s Punjab affairs in-charge Asha Kumari. Navjot Kaur, a former Bharatiya Janata Party legislator from Amritsar (East), on May 14 blamed the Chief Minister for denying her ticket either from Chandigarh or Amritsar. She said Sidhu would not campaign for his party in his home state as the Chief Minister has told him not to do so. Mr. Sidhu said at an election rally that he would be returning to Punjab on May 17 to deliver a “knockout punch” to the Badals.
