Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said he admired Navjot Singh Sidhu’s ‘courage’ in resigning from the Rajya Sabha.
“I admire his courage. I think all good people should resign from the BJP,” he said.
Kejriwal denied that Sidhu was set to become Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) chief ministerial face in Punjab and said that all such talk was premature. “There is nothing of this sort yet. Nothing has been decided,” he said.
While speaking at the launch of the book ‘Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party’, penned by one his IIT Kharagpur batchmates, the AAP national convener brushed aside Sidhu’s criticism of him in the past.
Following Sidhu’s decision to resign from the Upper House on Monday, AAP’s Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur had tweeted that the three-time MP and his wife were welcome to join AAP.
Kejriwal too had taken to Twitter, to ‘salute’ Sidhu. “People can give their right hand for an RS (Rajya Sabha) seat. Ever seen a sitting RS MP resigning to save his state? I salute Sidhu ji for his courage, ” he tweeted.
