New Delhi: Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Navjot Singh Sidhu will formally launch his new political outfit Awaaz-e-Punjab on Thursday.
Sidhu had announced the decision to form a new front along with Pargat Singh and Bains brothers on September 2.
“Our party will be against those working against Punjab,” Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu said after the announcement of the formation of the party.
Sidhu had earlier quit from the BJP amidst wide speculations that he might join Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). However, things did not work out between them, forcing Sidhu to form his own party.
Awaaz-e-Punjab will contest the Punjab Assembly polls scheduled for next year.
