Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday said he is always grateful to the party high command for “facilitating” him, while asserting that “there can never be a compromise”. He further said that those who understand his ‘ishq’ (love) for Punjab will never level any allegations against him.
Sidhu shared a video of himself discussing various issues related to Punjab on his Twitter handle. “I have ‘Ishq’ with Punjab. What is the meaning of ‘Ishq’? People think it is something physical. No….. it breaks from all relationships and this is my ‘Ishq’ for Punjab. Those who understand that my ‘Ishq’ for Punjab will never level any allegation against me.”
He said, “Everywhere my merit was ignored. In politics, 5 can be changed to 50 and 50 to zero. You should be given the facility and that is done by the high command. I will always be grateful to them. But by compromising.” How to proceed? This system stands like a monster and bites you.”
He also talked about curbing corruption and emphasized on increasing the resources and income of the state. “The solution to every problem of Punjab is income,” he said. Sidhu was made Punjab Congress president in July despite strong opposition from the then chief minister Amarinder Singh.
Sidhu, however, resigned as the Punjab Congress chief last month and had also questioned the appointment of the Director General of Police, State Advocate General and tainted leaders. Later, the party decided to form a coordination panel to be consulted before any major decision is taken by the Charanjit Singh Channi-led government.
