The Senior Congress leader also said that he will not prove his patriotism to anyone. Speaking to reporters Sidhu said, “Is the PM jealous that he was not called (for Imran Khan’s oath ceremony)? Is he jealous that he went to Pakistan uninvited (for Nawaz Sharif’s birthday)? I’ll not prove my patriotism to people whose name came up in Godhra case.” Currently, Sidhu is in Chhattisgarh campaigning for his party for the forthcoming Assembly elections. Earlier during his rally, former cricketer also announced the chief ministerial candidate for Congress in the state.

It is the constituency from where senior Congress leader Charandas Mahan is contesting the election. Speaking at the rally in Jangir Champa district of in the state, the former cricketer-turned-politician said, “When you win here, I will come here to congratulate you. And it is possible that the MLA of this area may very well be the CM of the state. It is very possible.”
