Punjab’s interest is paramount: Sidhu

New Delhi: “In the war of right or wrong, you can’t afford to be neutral rather than being self-centered. Punjab’s interest is paramount,” said Navjot Singh Sidhu, after resigning from his post as Rajya Sabha MP. Navjot Singh Sidhu, a former Indian cricketer, commentator and an ex-Lok Sabha MP from Amritsar, took the political circles by storm today after he announced his resignation from Rajya Sabha.

Sidhu, who is widely expected to join AAP (Aam Aadmi Party), said, “With closure of every window leading to Punjab the purpose stands defeated, now a mere burden. I prefer not to carry it. At behest of PM, I had accepted RS nomination for welfare of Punjab.”

AAP has reportedly said that the leader is welcome to join the party. Sanjay Singh of AAP welcomed Sidhu’s decision to resign as Rajya Sabha MP.
