New Delhi: In a press conference held by Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday, the former Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) made it very clear that Punjab is of paramount importance to him, irrespective of whether or not he remains associated with any political party.
Expressing love for his state Punjab, Sidhu said that he can never leave Punjab and will always work for the betterment of the state. “No party is above Punjab,” Sidhu added.
On his decision of quitting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Sidhu said that he could not tolerate the fact that he was asked to stay away from Punjab.
The same reason has been cited by him for quitting Rajya Sabha as well.
Using the analogy of a bird and nest, Sidhu said “even a bird comes back to its nest”, then how can he stay away from Punjab.
Sidhu further added, “I would have tolerated this had it happened for the first time, but this is the third or fourth time that I was asked to stay away from Punjab.”
“If asked to choose between family, relatives, party and Punjab, I will always choose Punjab over everything else,” Sidhu concluded.
However, nowhere in the press conference did Sidhu mention about him quitting BJP, joining AAP or being the Punjab Chief Minister (CM) candidate.
