Ending months of speculation, Former BJP MP and star campaigner Navjot Singh Sidhu finally made up his mind on his political future after dabbling with all sorts of ideas such as a fourth front and even joining Kejriwal. Sidhu followed his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu (who had joined Congress in Novemeber 2016) and joined Congress today after a meeting with Rahul Gandhi.

Aishwarya dated Salman, had a fling with Vivek & settled for Abhishek. Sidhu dated BJP, had a fling with AAP & settled for congress. Same.

With less than a month to go for the elections, Sidhu’s entry in to the Congress may seem late to many. Further, it is not clear what sort of understanding has been agreed upon and whether Sidhu has been promised any post if the party comes to power. Capt Amarinder Singh though had last week claimed that Sidhu would join Congress unconditionally. Meanwhile, social media seems to be enjoying the “Oh Guru” moment.
