Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Capt. Amarinder Singh has reportedly said that the cricketer-turned politician Navjot Sidhu would soon take a decision on either joining or campaigning for the Congress.
“I can tell you that I have met him. I hope very soon he will be making his announcement. I found him in a very positive frame of mind. I hope it will be a positive decision,” Amarinder said.

Asked specifically if Navjot Sidhu will be formally joining the Congress or not, the PCC chief said, “I think he will announce it himself. Let’s wait for the announcement in a few days time. But the impression I got, without any commitment from his side, is that he was inclined to support us.”
The former Punjab CM said he does not think that Sidhu is interested in contesting the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat and is likely to campaign for the party.
It is noteworthy that wife of Navjot Sidhu has already joined the congress party.
