New Delhi: Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Navjot Singh Sidhu on Friday formed a new front ‘Aawaaz-e-Punjab’ after talks with the Aam Aadmi Party remained unfruitful.
What Sidhu said?
- We have formed a new front along with Pargat Singh and Bains brother.
- This front will fight those working against Punjab.
