Congress has declared veteran Congress leader and former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal instead of Navjot Sidhu from the Chandigarh seat to contest in 2019’s general elections.
After this, Navjot Sidhu has announced that she will not contest from any other seat for Congress and is not going to take part in these elections.
Navjot Kaur said that she was offered a seat in Amritsar but she didn’t feel like contesting from there thus decided to step back.
Sidhu said that every party has its own agendas on which it takes decisions and this was one of it.
Kaur also cleared that if Pawan Bansal tells her to campaign for him, she will do it happily for Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee.
MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife said that Pawan Bansal has been contesting elections from Chandigarh for years, local organizations also supported Bansal.
In the past, Navjot had very confidently said that she would get a ticket from Chandigarh and If not she won’t fight these elections.
She ended the comments by saying, “I do not want people to point fingers at Sidhu sahib’s (Navjot Singh Sidhu) election campaign,” which ended people around confused and asking questions, does this mean, Sidhu was fearing a defeat?
