On Wednesday, Singh announced that Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu and former Akali MLA Pargat Singh will join the party on November 28. Congress sources told The Indian Express that Sidhu might join the party once the code of conduct kicked in. There were reports earlier that he could be offered a Lok Sabha ticket from Amritsar or a cabinet position, if Congress comes into power.

Sidhu’s Awaaz-e-Punjab disintegrated with the Bains brothers joining the Aam Aadmi Party. Interestingly, Amarinder previously called the Sidhus an “undisciplined couple” and their outfit a “tonga party”. Sidhu and Pargat too had, in a joint statement issued a few days ago, accused Amarinder of having a “nexus” with the Badals and said they could join Congress only when Amarinder was not at the helm of affairs.

    All must unite to oust Badals who have looted Punjab . Look at the industry , roads, universities and hospitals in Punjab and compare with Tamil Nadu or Gujarat . Everything is controlled by Badal family ; drugs, TV, transport , liquor and to top it all the SGPC ! What a joke ! From a prosperous state it has become a bemaru one .

            People like Sidhu are the selfish people who don't have any ethics in their life and change colors like camelian. People are not stupid now they will throw congress out with him and he deserve it.
