Meanwhile, Sidhu is scheduled to meet party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and party president Rajnath Singh on January 16. Only after this, the picture will get clear as to from where would the former cricketer contest the upcoming general elections.

In an exclusive interview with Dainik Jagran on Wednesday, Dr. Sidhu said that every party worker, including Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina, has the right to ask for ticket to contest Lok Sabha polls, adding that the lobbying between workers for party tickets is a positive sign.

“When the party high command gives party ticket to somebody, the other workers must abide by the decision. And before ticket distribution, the party leadership must consider the work done by them in strengthening the party,” Dr Sidhu added.

She further accepted that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has posed a serious challenge to the party and the party leadership will have to keep it in mind while distributing tickets. Dr Sidhu, meanwhile, squarely dismissed reports that political relations between her husband and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) have strained.

However, she admitted that Navjot Singh Sidhu must have spent more time in ‘Guru Nagri’ (the holy city of Golden Temple) to understand the problems faced by people there, adding that it was only because of some personal engagements he could not spend required time in the constituency.
