Having achieved a significant lead in the Punjab Assembly polls, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu today claimed this to be just the start.
The belief of the people of Punjab has emerged triumphant. This is the start of the Congress revival. We will ensure that we live up to all expectations, he said.
Addressing the media here today, an ecstatic Sidhu considered victory as new year’s gift to the Congress supremos and said it will fuel the development of the grand old party hereafter.
Hitting out at his opponents, Sidhu said the pride of Maharaja Ranjit Singh has been rescued from the hands of arrogant politicians.
Politics is not a business. The previous government considered Punjab’s wealth as their own and looted our treasures. Our intentions are very clear. We have no hidden motives. We only want Punjab to progress as a state. We will not let down our party workers or the people of Punjab in this regard, added Sidhu.
Congress frontrunner Capt. Amarinder Singh has established his victory from Patiala urban seat with a margin of over 51,000 votes.
