Sidhu may have ambition of becoming CM, Congress does not tolerate indiscipline: Captain Amarinder Singh

The Punjab Chief Minister said that it was fine if Sidhu wanted to replace him and become the Chief Minister as people do have ambitions. Navjot Kaur had slammed Amarinder Singh earlier claiming that he denied her a Lok Sabha ticket.

Responding to Navjot Singh Sindhu‘s remarks backing his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu’s allegations of denying her a Lok Sabha ticket from Amritsar, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said that he had no difference of opinion with Sidhu but the timing of his statement was wrong. He said that Sidhu’s statement just a day ahead of the election might affect the party, if at all, and not him.

The Chief Minister said that it was fine if Sidhu wanted to replace him and become the Chief Minister as people do have ambitions. “I have known him since childhood, I have no difference of opinion with him. He probably wants to become the Chief Minister and replace me, that is his business”, said the Captain.

When asked about a disciplinary action would be taken against such comments, Singh said that the Congress Party never tolerated indiscipline and that he was sure that the party would look into the matter after the election. “It is up to the central leadership to take notice of this and I have read news reports on this. I am sure they will look at it after the elections. Congress Party does not believe in indiscipline. I have seen this for 50 years, they will not accept things where you can damage the party. Otherwise, you are free to say what you want. If anyone from Punjab damages the party, it is wrong”, he said.

Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife had alleged that she was denied the Lok Sabha ticket from Amritsar Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Congress Punjab affairs-in-charge Asha Kumari had said that she could not win from the constituency. Sidhu had also come out in support of his wife and said that she would never lie.
