Former Indian cricketer and ex-BJP leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday opened up on why he left Rajya Sabha. He said that he was asked to stay far away from Punjab. The state will go to polls next year. Almost after a week, Sidhu spoke abut the whole issue to the reporters in Delhi. He said, “I was asked to stay away from Punjab. How can I quit my roots? The first time can be a mistake. But this is the fourth time it is happening…it was hard to take in.”
“When the going gets tough, it is Sidhu Sidhu…but now they say don’t look at Punjab….Have I done anything wrong? At least tell me my crime? Should I stay away to serve the personal interests of some people?” added Sidhu.
There are rumours that Sidhu might even embrace AAP and join hands with Arvind Kejriwal. The news has created a stir on social media and Twitter is filled with tweets on this issue. Take a look at what people have to say on Sidhu’s verdict here:
