Amarinder Singh also accused Sidhu of damaging grand old party’s image with his irrelevant comments.
Sidhu had earlier accused the Chief Minister of being responsible for denial of ticket to his wife Navjot Kaur from Chandigarh. However, denying the charge, Singh had said that Kaur had been offered Congress ticket from Amritsar or Bathinda seat, but she refused it.
“She would never lie. My wife has that much strength and moral authority that she will never lie,” Sidhu was heard saying at a press conference when asked about his wife’s allegation.
Denying allegations, Amarinder said he had no role to play in allotment of ticket for Chandigarh as the union territory was not under his control.
“There is no war of words with Sidhu. If he is ambitious, it’s fine. People have ambitions. I have known him since childhood and have no difference of opinion with him. He probably wants to become CM and replace me, that is his business,” Singh said.
Meanwhile, Singh showed his confidence in the favour of the party saying, “We will definitely defeat both BJP and Akali Dal.” He also added that Congress will win both at the state and across the country.
