Rajnath Singh calls Sidhu, assures him of looking into grievances
New Delhi: BJP President Rajnath Singh today stepped in to pacify sulking party MP Navjot Singh Sidhu who is said to be upset with the party leadership for "sidelining" and "ignoring" him.
Singh spoke to Sidhu in the morning and assured him of looking into his grievances, sources close to the BJP president said. The Amristar MP will meet Singh in the capital after the ongoing IPL cricket tournament gets over, they said. Sidhu was not available for comments as he is busy with his commitments in the IPL season.
The cricketer-turned-politician has been sulking for quite some time and the matter precipitated after he was recently dropped from Singh's new list of BJP office-bearers. He was Secretary in BJP during Nitin Gadkari's tenure as president. Sidhu is also keen to change his constituency following his differences with top Akali leaders in the area, including Punjab Minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia.
Majithia, brother-in-law of Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, is the in-charge of Akali in the area.
Saddened by the current political situation of the country, actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta is thinking about joining politics, as she wants to be part of a movement which can bring a positive change in India's political system.
