Navjot Kaur Sidhu joins Congress party

New Delhi, 28 Nov 2016 : Cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu and former hockey Olympian Pargat Singh on Monday joined the Congress.

Hinting at Sidhu’s entry to the Congress, Navjot Kaur said: “We are like one soul in two bodies. The body has to follow the soul.”

Punjab Congress President Captain Amarinder Singh said: “If Mrs Sidhu is here, do you think Mr Sidhu is not going to come with us (Congress)?”

“I have not met him yet and I have not spoken to him. He is still in Mumbai; when he comes to Delhi we will discuss it,” Singh said in a media briefing here.

Pargat and Kaur met the Congress high command here last week regarding their entry to the party ahead of the Punjab assembly elections early next year.
