Wife’s Explosive Claim: Navjot Sidhu ‘Gifted’ CM’s Chair To Bhagwant Mann

New Delhi: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu ‘gifted’ the Punjab chief minister’s chair to Bhagwant Mann, if the former Team India opener’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu is to be believed.

In an explosive claim, Mrs Sidhu said Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal once wanted her husband to lead Punjab, but he chose not to betray his party.

“CM Bhagwant Mann, let me today open out a hidden secret from your treasure hunt. You should know that the very honourable chair you are occupying has been gifted to you by your big brother, Mr Navjot Sidhu. Your very own senior-most leader had desired Navjot to lead Punjab,” Navjot Kaur tweeted.

In a series of tweets, she claimed that Kejriwal had approached Sidhu through various channels to lead Punjab ahead of last year’s assembly elections, but he decided to avoid a possible conflict.

“You tread on the path of truth and he shall support you, but the moment you deviate he will target you left and right. A golden Punjab state is his dream and he lives it 24 hours a day,” she wrote.

Her tweets came amid a war of words between Mann and Sidhu.

Mann described Opposition parties as “cut from the same cloth” for their gathering in Jalandhar in support of the editor of a Punjab daily who is under the vigilance department’s radar.

Sidhu then accused those who treated democracy as a surveillance system and controlled Punjab remotely of engaging in moral lecturing.
