Punjab Finance Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, too, said “it is difficult to take anything what Sidhu says seriously”. Indicating that Sidhu has little chance to win, Majithia, who is Harsimrat’s brother, said, “Will people forget what he had said about Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi? He used the most derogatory words for Dr Manmohan Singh sahab.”

Sidhu, who was nominated by the BJP to Rajya Sabha in April last year, resigned from the Upper House in a matter of months. Ever since, he had held hectic negotiations with both Aam Aadmi Party and Congress.

Congress is likely to field Sidhu from Amritsar East seat in the upcoming Assembly elections.
