Chandigarh: In the first interaction with the media after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) registered a thumping win in Punjab Assembly Elections, the state Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu said this is a politics of change.
“I congratulate the people of Punjab for this excellent decision of ushering in a new system,” Sidhu was quoted as saying reporters by NDTV.
Asked how he can say that being the Congress chief of the state, Sidhu asserted that the people have chosen change and they are never wrong. “The voice of the people is the voice of God. We should understand with humility and bow to it,” he said.
Showing no signs of distress, he said the upliftment of Punjab is his mission and he never strayed from it and never will. “When a Yogi is on a crusade, they cut all ties and are free of all bounds. They don’t even fear death. I am here in Punjab and will remain here. When someone has a higher objective and is in love with Punjab then he doesn’t care about win or loss,” the former India cricketer said.
“My connection with the people is not limited, it’s spiritual and of the heart. My relationship with the people is not limited to poll wins and losses. I see God in the people of Punjab and my welfare in their welfare,” Sidhu said.
AAP’s Jeevanjyot Kaur won the Amritsar East seat to beating the Congress president by over 6,000 votes. He polled 32,929 votes against Kaur’s 39,520 votes.
