The new political front in Punjab is likely to be launched on September 9. The front will be formed by Navjot Singh Sidhu, Pargat Singh and Bains brothers. Sidhu's wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu said, "Along with Pargat Singh and Bains brothers we have formed a front. This will be against those working against Punjab."

Awaaz-e-Punjab poster says the front to "raise voice against those who have destroyed Punjab".

According to sources, Sidhu has asked the AAP for a position no less than the Punjab chief minister but the party is not willing to concede his demand.

Earlier, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that Sidhu has not put any pre-conditions on joining the AAP and needs time to think over the issue.

Congress Embarrassed After Sidhu's Decision

The decision taken by Sidhu has also embarrassed the Congress as it had said the party's Punjab unit chief Amarinder Singh will take a call on the matter of the cricketer-turned-politician's entry into the party. The Congress was trying to woo Sidhu after his induction into the AAP looked uncertain.

Amarinder Singh had earlier said that Sidhu was welcome to join Congress as it is in his DNA, as his father happened to be a Congressman. Sidhu hails from Patiala, the home town of Amarinder Singh.
