Navjot Singh Sidhu keeps everyone guessing Arvind Kejriwal says it’s his call

Navjot Singh Sidhu meets Arvind Kejriwal

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, whose joining the Aam Aadmi Party was being seen as a foregone conclusion at one point, has left everyone guessing about his future plans.

The party on Thursday said it was Sidhu’s decision to quit the Rajya Sabha and it will be “entirely” his call to join the outfit.

Sidhu had on Friday met Delhi chief minister and AAP’s National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal at the latter’s residence, but the party remained tight lipped on what transpired at the meeting.

Kejriwal said his respect for Sidhu, who met him last Friday at his residence, will continue irrespective of whether “he joins (AAP) or not”.

Earlier, the AAP chief had said that talks of Sidhu becoming the party’s face in Punjab were “premature”.

“Didn’t put any pre-condition. He needs time to think. Lets respect that. He is a v gud human being n a ckt legend. My respect for him wud continue whether he joins or not,” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.

However, a party leader from Punjab said Sidhu is likely join the party soon. After his sudden resignation from the Rajya Sabha last month, the former BJP MP from Amritsar, had lashed out at the party leadership, but kept mum on his future plans.
The buzz is that Sidhu is negotiating hard to be chief ministerial candidate of the party in Punjab and that he is also seeking a ticket for his wife, Navjot Kaur Sidhu, a BJP MLA from Amritsar (Rural).
