Sidhu decides against floating political party
Days after announcing the launch of Aawaaz-e-Punjab, he said they have decided against forming a political party as it is too short a time to prepare for polls, but added that they are open to ‘alliance’ for <g data-gr-id="17">betterment</g> of Punjab.
“The forum welcomes any alliance for the betterment of Punjab and will not be a political party. May Punjab, Punjabiyat and every Punjabi win,” he said.
In a statement issued here, Sidhu said the forum will not "play spoilsport". "The past is the best prophet to predict the future –the minimum time taken by a new party to win a state is almost two years...three months is too short a time for this herculean task,” he said.
"I have pondered over the fluid political situation in Punjab, weighed the pros and cons and come to a conclusive decision...We will not confuse the people of Punjab but give them clarity to vote in Punjab's interest,” he said
