“Bharatiya Janta Party zindabad” was the slogan that greeted Navjot Kaur Sidhu, BJP MLA from Amritsar (East), as she took a round of her constituency, a day after her husband Navjot Singh Sidhu’s resignation as a member of the Rajya Sabha.
She was on a tour of the constituency after announcing to mediapersons at her Amritsar home that the resignation of her husband Navjot Singh Sidhu also meant he had resigned from the BJP. As for her own political career, she was waiting, she said, for directions from her husband.
Navjot Kaur Sidhu, also praised Prime Minister Modi.
“Modi is doing a great job. He is an honest and a hardworking person. But it is responsibility of states to execute his policies on ground. No person turns bad just because you have moved on. I criticised Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal). But not all the people are bad in that party. SAD has many good people.”
About her personal admiration for RSS, she said: “I have seen Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) working very closely. I read their books and go to their Shakhas (gatherings). They work for humanity and teach people to respect other religion. RSS works to keep people united and does not divide in the name of religion. There are some people who have wrongly labelled RSS. Respect for the RSS ideology will remain in my mind wherever I work.”
