Veteran Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh could be on the verge of starting a new innings. If reports are to be believed, ‘The Turbanator’ has been in talks with Congress party leaders about joining the party.
Sidhu’s meeting with Gandhi lasted for more than 30 minutes and had come at a time when the Congress has finalised half of its candidates for the coming Assembly elections in Punjab.
There was no official word as to what transpired at the meet, but it assumed significance as this was Sidhu’s first meeting with Gandhi after his wife Navjot Kaur joined the party late last month.
Reports had it that the former cricketer, who left BJP over two months back, had met Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh in Chandigarh.
Amarinder had said that he does not think that Sidhu is interested in contesting Amritsar Lok Sabha by elections and is likely to campaign for the party.
Sidhu’s entry into Congress has been speculated for a long time now. Sidhu was earlier in talks with AAP but it did not materialise leading to a split in his recently formed outfit Awaaz-E-Punjab.
