With Punjab assembly elections approaching, the Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal has made a big claim. The AAP leader said that Punjab PCC president Navjot Singh Sidhu wanted to join the party, however, will not be inducted.


Talking in a TV show with News 18, the AAP chief said that Sidhu was in contact with him and wanted to join the party. "However, he is happy in Congress and thus will not be inducted.” Meanwhile, Kejriwal remained tight-lipped about the last time he spoke with the Congress leader.

Taking a dig at Sidhu, Kejriwal said that AAP conducts surveys before elections and for leaders who underperform and fail to work in their constituency, the party does not provide election tickets to them. The Delhi CM named two MLAs including Navjot Sidhu and said “they did not work for people thus we refused to provide the ticket. In return, they left party.”

“Congress rejoiced when these MLAs joined the party. Their CM (Captain Amarinder Singh) left the party, their party president (Navjot Sidhu) wants to leave Congress and their ex-party chief (Sunil Jakhar) could leave. They can’t even handle their own party,” mocked Kejriwal.

Earlier, Kejriwal had praised Sidhu for raising people's issues in Punjab and called him “brave” for criticising his own government and CM. This unexpected statement of the AAP chief had raised suspicion of Sidhu joining AAP, which caused a stir in Congress.

Now, Kejriwal has made clear Sidhu will not join AAP and the party will soon announce its CM candidate in Punjab.

Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party, under the leadership of its national convenor Arvind Kejriwal, will hold a ‘Tiranga Yatra’ in Punjab today. The AAP leader is slated to visit Punjab again and attend 'Tiranga Yatra’ in Pathankot.

Delhi deputy CM and education minister Manish Sisodia will accompany him.

This is Kejriwal’s sixth visit to Punjab in the last two months.

With his recent visits to Punjab, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has effectively taken control of the Aam Aadmi Party's election campaign in the run-up to the 2022 Assembly elections.

AAP was the second-largest party in Punjab in the 2017 elections, winning 20 of the total 117 seats. This time, the AAP's senior leaders are focusing on Punjab intending to capture power in the northern state.
