If Shiromani Akali Dal leader Badal was fine with supporting him, then he would have asked his party workers to work wholeheartedly in his favour, said Sidhu, the BJP MP from Amritsar.
Sidhu has made it clear that he would contest the Lok Sabha polls from nowhere but Amritsar since he was committed to the people of the city.
He said the BJP high command cannot field any candidate from Amritsar without Badal's consent as the ruling SAD's support was crucial for success in any poll contest in Punjab.

Meanwhile, when asked whether he would be taking part in BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's rally in Jagraon, Sidhu said he had not received an invitation from the party for the same and would not attend uninvited.

If BJP were to hand a ticket to Sidhu to contest from Amritsar, then he might have to face singer Rabbi Shergil, whom the Aam Aadmi Party may field as its candidate.
