Breaking the self-imposed exile after almost a year and a half, former Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday arrived at Punjab Vidhan Sabha to attend the special session called to discuss and counter the three central farm laws.
Prior to going to Vidhan Sabha, Sidhu held a meeting with MLA Pargat Singh at the latter’s residence.
Sidhu attending the Assembly session not only indicates the importance he is giving to the farmers’ issue, but also signifies reconciliatory undertones between him and Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh at the behest of the party high command.
Though Sidhu did not exchange greetings with the Chief Minister, he met a number of MLAs ahead of the session.
Last time Sidhu had attended the session was after the Pulwama attack in Kashmir. Since then, he has been keeping away from the Assembly.
