Sidhu INCorporated as Punjab election committee head

A beaming Navjot Singh Sidhu reacted to the U-turn by his party, saying he'd never asked for anything for himself and that Punjab's welfare was his sole concern

Taking a U-turn from its previous decision of keeping both Chief Minister and Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu out of all its election panels, the Indian National Congress (INC) has appointed its state chief as the chairman of the party’s Pradesh Committee.

The INC has released the list of members part of the committee. Besides Sidhu and chief minister Channi, Ambika Soni, Sunil Jhakhar, Pratap Singh Bajwa are also part of the committee.

This follows a statement from Sidhu that he will never be a showpiece to win elections and never lie to the people of the state for coming to power. He said he had never asked for any position from anyone in his life but always wanted Punjab’s welfare.

“Neither have I demanded anything in life nor will I ever do so. I have never even asked people for votes,” Sidhu said while responding to a question from whom on whether he would be named as the chief minister by the Congress if it wins the 2022 Punjab Assembly polls.

“Responsibility either makes you better or bitter. I have a bitter experience. I had a role in making three governments in Punjab. I was campaigning. But in this system, a good man is made a showpiece. He is only kept for winning elections,” the cricketer-turned-politician said.

“I will never be a showpiece… I will also never lie to the people of Punjab for coming to power. Can anyone say that I have ever lied? Because I have nothing to lose,” Sidhu added.
