Suspense over: Sidhu to launch political party ‘Awaaz-e-Punjab’

Putting to bed rumours over his next move after his resignation from BJP, Navjot Singh Sidhu is all set to lead a new political front in Punjab, where assembly elections will be held early in 2017.

The front, Awaaz-e-Punjab, will be launched by September 9, declared a big red poster shared on Facebook by the cricketer turned politician’s wife, Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who is a BJP lawmaker in the Punjab Assembly.

The poster she has shared on Friday features Sidhu dressed all in black and flanked by former hockey great and his close friend Pargat Singh and an independent lawmaker from Ludhiana, Simarjit Singh Bains.

Sidhu had walked out of the BJP in July and was in talks to join Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party for weeks.
