His wife Navjot Singh, who is the chief parliamentary secretary in Punjab have also created quite a flutter in the BJP party after she announced her resignation on April 1 from BJP.

But after meeting some of the leaders from the current ruling party, she said that she is very much part of the party. But now rumors are doing the round that she will soon hand over her resignation to the party.

Going by the current development Bhagwant Mann, the AAP Sangrur MP said, “If Navjot Singh Sidhu decides to join the party we will welcome with open arms. As far as now. For now, he has not contacted us and nor have we got in touch with him.”

Furthermore, Mann added that as of now the party has not decided on who will campaign as AAP CM from Punjab. As far as Sidhu is concerned because of his clean image and oratory skill, may find a stronger ground base in AAP.
