CHANDIGARH: “This time the victory will be of Punjab, Punjabiyat and the people of Punjab," said cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu after filing his nomination in Amritsar for Amritsar (East) Assembly constituency.

"I want to tell every Punjabi to vote for Punjab this time and also to vote to establish righteousness in the state. I want the youth of Punjab to walk on the right path. It was important for me to come into the system and fight," said Sidhu who had joined the Congress two days back in Delhi.

He also said this was not his personal fight.

Sidhu was accompanied by his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu who is a former MLA from Amritsar (East) constituency, having won the seat in 2012 on a BJP ticket. However, she resigned from the saffron party and joined the congress last year. A former MP, Sidhu is pitted against Amritsar BJP district chief Rajesh Kumar Honey.
