Hope Navjot Sidhu will continue fight against corruption and Badals: AAP

"I hope that they are able to sweep the polls in Punjab", he added.

"Although Navjot Singh Sidhu and Pargat are my personal friends, I respect them a lot".

Amid reports that Sidhu wanted to be the chief ministerial candidate of AAP, Arvind Kejriwal had on August 19 said that the cricketer- turned-politician had not put any pre-condition and just needed "time to think" about his future plans.

With nowhere to go, now the Sixer Sidhu has hit a political sixer by announcing that he would form a political party on his own. Sidhu ji was interested in joining the Aam Aadmi Party and he abandoned the ship. "It is also one more example of how the entire Opposition in Punjab is nothing more than a conglomerate of disparate elements brought together by nothing more than pre-election opportunism", General Secretary and spokesperson, SAD, Harcharan Singh Bains said in a statement here. Navjot had previously hinted that he will open new power equations in Punjab and will seek the help of MLA Pargat Singh, Former Congress MLA Ramanjeet Sekki, and other similar likeminded people.

Hockey Olympian and Punjab's Shiromani Akali Dal legislator Pargat Singh and two Independent legislators, Balwinder Singh Bains and Simarjit Singh Bains, have also joined hands with Sidhu.

According to the BJP, AAP's graph had taken a drastic hit after allegations of cash for ticket against party leader Sanjay Singh and complaints of sexual harassment of women by Durgesh Pathak. For us, politics is not a business but a passion to serve our country and strive to end drug menace, corruption and crime in Punjab.

Cricketer-turned-politician to float new party, Awaaz-e-Punjab; Kejriwal's loss delights BJP.

In the past, Navjot was at loggerhead with the Akali Dal, BJP partner who is presently ruling the state.

The development comes around six months ahead of the Punjab polls and gives a new dimension to the political matrix in the state.
