New Delhi: Capt Amarinder Singh president of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee said that former Amritsar MP Navjot Singh Sidhu was welcome to join the Congress, if he desired to do so. This comes after Navjot Sidhu resigned from the Rajya Sabha today.
“Congress party’s doors are open for everyone,” said the Captain but also made it clear that there was no communication between him and Sidhu on this so far.
