Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu of the Congress is all set to win Amritsar East as a Congress candidate. While addressing to media in Chandigarh, Sidhu said that this is the revival of the Congress and it is just the beginning. Congress will spread from here.
He further said that it is a victory for Congress because of people's faith and believe. They have chosen the right path by defeating the enemies.
Sidhu also said that one needs to have good intent to win and Kejriwal lost because his intent was not right. He wanted everything for himself.
''We have to leave the mentality of revenge behind and work for Punjab's development. We have to fight to bring back the lost pride and wealth of Punjab,'' said Sidhu.
''I want to promise Sonia Gandhi that we will present Punjab as an example. No sacrifice will be too large for it,'' added Sidhu.
Earlier today, the Congress is set for a comeback in Punjab after 10 years. The party is leading in over 70 seats. The former BJP MP has a lead of nearly 23,000 votes over his nearest rival, BJP's Rajesh Kumar Honey. Punjab has 117 seats, a party needs 59 to form the government.
