No decision has yet been taken on Navjot Singh Sidhu’s entry into the party even as speculation was rife about his joining the Congress. Senior Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad is reportedly in touch with Sidhu and has made him an offer. Source said Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh has been taken into confidence on the matter.

Sidhu had earlier created a furore in the Congress when he had said that he would join the party only if Amarinder was not in it. He had alleged a nexus between Badals and the state party chief and had said he would not work with him.

                      Sidhu and his wife joining corrupt and joker party Congress. Sidhu the comedian may find himself in a real mess after resigning from BJP. Out spoken foul mouth was not sure of joining joker Khujliwal aapxxrd party and then changed his mind to form his own party. He found it tough going and realised his ber for leaving BJP. The same comedian who hated Amrinder and Congress is now set to join the same corrupt party he hated. Will the Congress now become honest party after Sidhu and his wife joins them? Pappu will be Sidhu leader and Congress is on its way out. Goon Khujriwal will be kicked out of Punjab too. Alkali Dal/BJP will be back in power and both Sidhu and his wife losing the deposit.

                        It's too bad. Sidhu is just a joker now. He helped none.

                            Big mistake. Worthless and lazy people who love money more than serving the people and yet wanted big post. They just boarded a sinking ship. Better stick to comedy. Sidhu always think with emotions even when he pla cricket.

                              The society in India is neither feudal nor capitalistic, but in transition between the two historical epochs. Social ties are weak. Those belonging to various cleavages do not trust one another. The mes are not adequately politicized. Politics is elite compeion. Power is an important variable. If we call successful persons charlatans, that would be an understatement. By and large, they are interested only in themselves. They are always trying to make others look foolish. From one situation to another, the power holders mobilize the mes in the name of anything that works for the time being. This helps them to bake their own bread. Political parties are dynamic rival coalitions. Their fractions have shifting boundaries and contested loyalties. In order to grow and develop, Indians will have to muddle through for a long time to come.
