New Delhi: Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu on Saturday said the Congress party will work for the people of Punjab as the party looked set to take the state.

Sidhu told a press conference that a win will mark the revival of the Congress party.

“This is the revival of the Congress. They will revive from here, get energy and spread from here. Now the fight will have to be fought for the rights of Punjab and not keeping revenge in mind. In head is a will to bring the good days back for Punjab,” Sidhu said.

Sidhu joined the Congress party in January after failing to make headway in talks with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) .

“Kejriwal lost because he wanted everything for himself. These people are trolls and it is a big loss for them as well. This is the biggest win for the workers of Congress,” he said.

Sidhu who contested from the Amritsar-east constituency was winning by a margin of over 34,000 votes, according to trends.

“We want the support of all parties. That is done with. There is a want in our heart to work for Punjab. This state should flourish. The treasuries of Punjab which have been plundered have to be filled again. People have a lot of aspiration from us and we will be able to fulfil their promises,” Sidhu said.
