New Delhi: Speculations are being made over former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Navjot Singh Sidhu joining the Congress party after he met party vice president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on Wednesday.  

According to sources, the meeting between Rahul Gandhi and Awaaz-e-Punjab's political front chief Navjot Singh Sidhu was a successful meet. Following this meet, the Congress vice president invited former Punjab Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Captain Amarinder Singh to New Delhi. 

Post his departure from the BJP, Sindhu launched his own political front called 'Awaaz-e-Punjab'. He also indulged in talks with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is also preparing agressively for the forthcoming Assembly Election in Punjab, but later clarified that he would not be joining or looking for a post-election alliance.

On the other side, AAP has also confirmed that it will fight the Punjab election on its own. 

Amidst, all this, the former cricketer-turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu's meeting with Rahul Gandhi raises questions that he may join Congress or look for any kind of post-poll alliance.

However, no comments by Rahul Gandhi and Navjot Singh Sindhu have been made on this issue.
