Sidhu to contest from Amritsar East for Congress: Amarinder Singh

Putting an end to speculations, the Congress party on Thursday said that Navjot Singh Sidhu will contest in the upcoming Punjab assembly elections as a party nominee.

“Navjot Singh Sidhu will contest from the constituency of his wife, Navjot Kaur Sidhu,” former Punjab Chief Minister and Congress state unit chief Captain Amarinder Singh told the media. “Sidhu will contest from Amritsar (East) seat as a Congress nominee,” Singh said.

The cricketer-turned-politician had resigned from the Bharatiya Janata Party on September 14, 2016. After which, there had been speculations of him joining Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) but soon fell through. However, this seals the final statement about Sidhu contesting Punjab elections.
