Working to demolish system unable to dispense justice to Guru, not hankering for post: Navjot Singh Sidhu
Navjot Singh Sidhu said his fight was to change this system which eroded Punjab like termites and is being run by mafias.
The trouble in Punjab comes after the party faced a similar situation in Uttarakhand, where state in-charge Devender Yadav turned down Harish Rawat's demand to be made the CM candidate.
Both Singh and Dhindsa, a Rajya Sabha MP, met with the BJP top brass, including president J P Nadda and Amit Shah, at Shah's residence here to chalk out a strategy for the polls.
A few days ago, Harbhajan Singh had dismissed speculation that he and former cricketer Yuvraj Singh could join the BJP as 'fake news'.
Last month, Arvind Kejriwal had joined the contractual teachers in Punjab's Mohali, who staged a protest making a similar demand.
Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu described Moosewala as a youth icon and an 'international figure'.
Kejriwal also alleged that neither the Congress nor Shiromani Akali Dal regularised jobs of temporary teachers during their regimes.
Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi said that the Badals will have to pay for their sins against the state and its people.
Searches were also conducted at the premises of Gurdeep Jujhar, who owns Fastway cable and transport business and is close to the Badal family.
