New Delhi: Navjot Singh Sidhu who is more associated now with comedy than his cricket exploits has joined the Congress party just before Punjab polls. This is being seen as a shrewd move as the party is being seen as a comeback force that is expected to beat the incumbent Akali Dal and BJP government in the state.
Thanks to his association with leading comedian Kapil Sharma, not just Sidhu has remained relevant to the public, he also has a steady source of revenue. Reports suggest that Sidhu earns as much as Rs 10 -12 lakh per episode. Kapil Sharma, on the other hand earns around Rs 50 lakh per episode.
Many people are wondering as to how Sidhu must be feeling in his latest political party as he was a star campaigner for the BJP in Punjab and used to criticize Gandhis and other Congress leaders including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh rather very openly. He used to describe them in very humiliating term. In fact from Jawahar Lal Nehru to Indira and Sonia Gandhi he spared none. If you find it unbelievable watch the following videos.
This strengthens the perception that there is really no permanent enemy or friend in politics.
