Navjot Kaur, the wife of former Rajya Sabha MP Navjot Singh Sidhu, has clarified that his husband resigned from the the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to counter the propaganda launched against him by some vested interests.
Kaur pointed out that a propaganda was launched against Sidhu on social media branding him a mole of BJP who was sent to facilitate the victory of SAD-BJP alliance in the state.
"When he resigned from the Rajya Sabha, he thought it would be assumed that he had resigned from the BJP as well. But the people were spreading wrong messages on social media and deliberately creating propaganda on social media that he has been sent from the BJP or RSS to spoil the whole system and support the Akali Dal. So, it became necessary to resign formally from the BJP," Navjot Kaur said.
Kaur firmly denied any possibility of her entering into an alliance with the Shiromani Akal Dal (SAD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the upcoming Punjab Assembly polls.
Kaur said that she would prefer to work only with those having a great vision for the state.
"Whoever will be in favour of Punjab, I will be in favour of that system. Otherwise I prefer not to be a part of any system and pursue my medical career or start an NGO. I will be a part of the system only if I will see that a party will be able to handle Punjab and comes up with a great vision," she said.
Navjot Singh Sidhu officially resigned from the BJP earlier today. The move came after Navjot Kaur lashed out at the BJP-SAD regime in Punjab while accusing them of not letting her work in her constituency and continuously interfering in her work.
"Whenever I have told Badal ji that the administration is interfering in my work he said that this can't happen to a lady. With a lot of efforts, I got money for my constituency at the end of the term. When I tried to spend the money in small villages, where there is no roads then the administration got a call from higher authorities . They were asked to move out of the place and told that the MLA is here and you don't have to stand with her," she said.
"If the MLA is doing something wrong then he/she should be questioned. If I am doing some anti-party activity then I should be questioned. Why are the administrators being prevented from following my orders? Is this a way to treat an MLA?" she asked.
Earlier in mid-July, Sidhu had resigned from Upper House of Parliament after he was allegedly asked by the BJP to stay away from poll-bound Punjab.
