Chandigarh, Oct 28: Punjab’s ruling Shiromani Akali Dal on Friday said that both the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were desperate to woo cricketer-turned-politician vjot Singh Sidhu who was a ‘political deadwood’. “The concerted efforts of both the Congress and AAP for over a month to woo political deadwood vjot Singh Sidhu only reflects their desperation in the face of impending humiliating defeat in the 2017 assembly elections. These parties hope that Sidhu will bail them out,” Punjab Chief Minister’s political adviser Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal said in a statement here.
Grewal said Sidhu was hobnobbing with these parties only to secure plum positions for himself and his wife vjot Kaur, if they won the elections. “Has Sidhu talked of any programme or vision for Punjab or its people?” Grewal asked. “First decide whether he or his wife will be offered Deputy Chief Minister’s post or not. Rest can wait and be decided later on,” Grewal said, adding that Sidhu’s political ambitions overshadowed everything else. (IANS)
