SAD-BJP

The Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab convener, Sucha Singh Chhotepur, is evidently ‘pleased’ with BJP leader and chief parliamentary secretary Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu’s annoyance over the Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party alliance and her reported praise for the AAP. The Hindustan Times’ Punjab handle had tweeted her views on the continuation of alliance, in which she had hinted to a question on AAP that she was looking for options and so was her husband Navojot Singh Sidhu as they won’t fight the next assembly elections under the SAD-BJP alliance banner. And Chhotepur was among the first ones to ‘like’ the tweet (See the snapshot of the tweet; his Twitter handle spells the surname of AAP leader as ‘Chotepur’).

In the interview to Hindustan Times, Dr Sidhu had minced no words in outrightly rejecting the continuation of the SAD-BJP alliance for the 2017 assembly elections. She had said that they (the Sidhus) would stay away from the election campaign. She had termed the SAD-BJP alliance “not good” for Punjab and its people. The CPS dropped enough hints that she might be on her way out and the AAP could be her next destination.

“I will definitely contest the polls, but won’t represent the SAD-BJP alliance. Politics is not over for me, it has just started. As the party has made its stand clear, we, too, have the right to take our own decisions. I will reveal my next course of action in the days to come. I will have to look for better options that are in the interest of Punjab and its people. My husband Navjot Sidhu will also not contest or take any campaign responsibility till the alliance is on with Akali Dal,” said Dr Sidhu.
