As previous opener for Team India, a clever feeling of timing easily falls into place for cricketer-turned-lawmaker Navjot Sidhu who is at the focal point of a furious defiance in the decision Punjab Congress emerging predominantly out of his running duel with boss priest Capt Amarinder Singh for most recent a long time since his exit from the bureau. Indeed, even as the central leadership hopes to placate the fighting chiefs and “appropriately oblige” Sidhu, as suggested by a party board ten days prior, the Amritsar MLA’s understanding might be wearing ragged.
In an elite drawn out meet with Executive Editor Ramesh Vinayak and Associate Editor Navneet Sharma at his Patiala home on Sunday. Sidhu, 59, made a rankling assault on Amarinder and spread out his assumptions however played a sly dodger on his next game-plan. His tone and timing came as the most clear marker yet of extreme assignment the central leadership faces in adjusting Sidhu’s desire and Captain’s power.
What does Navjot Sidhu need?
The consistency of direction of my political vocation was to notice a framework and change it. A framework run by two amazing families who are controlling Punjab, disparaging the governing body, abrogating the interests of the state and only for their vested, self centered interests and organizations as a conspiracy. They have controlled everything.
They have fought for one another, guarded one another. My battle has been against that framework. I joined the (Congress) party after Prashant Kishor met me multiple times. I disclosed to them I have a favorable to Punjab plan. I battled in 56 get together seats and party won in 54 of them, and 23 out of 24 were in Majha.
This is the plan I followed from the absolute first bureau meeting where I gave a proposition to the central clergyman to change the alcohol strategy for more income and give occupations with that cash. You are taking credits to return advances and the state exchequer is being plundered.
The framework said ‘no’. I took the mining strategy to the framework, saying that this is state’s fortune. Telangana procures ₹2,500 crore from one waterway every year. Punjab has three streams. The last Akali-BJP government stored just ₹40 crore from sand barters in 10 years. Where is this cash going? I advised them ‘you fix the rate for sand and sell it at government rates.
