'You reap what you sow': After Congress' defeat in Punjab, Sidhu says need of 'chintan' not 'chinta'

Amritsar (Punjab): A day after the Congress party lost Assembly election in Punjab, party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu said “you reap what you sow” while noting there is a need to sow new seeds and ‘chintan’ and not ‘chinta’ should be done.

Sidhu, who himself lost from Amritsar East Assembly constituency, said those who dug holes for him “got buried in holes 10ft deeper”. 

Referring to Aam Aadmi Party’s landslide victory in Punjab, he said “people have voted for change”.

“People who dug holes for Sidhu got buried in holes 10ft deeper. Let bygones be bygones… People have voted for AAP for a change, I congratulate them… New seeds have to be sown… not ‘chinta’ (worry) but ‘chintan’ (deliberation) should be done,” Sidhu said.

Apart from Sidhu, Chief Minster Charanjit Singh Channi also lost the polls. Channi had been declared Congress’ chief ministerial candidate.

Sidhu, who was seen to have chief ministerial ambitions, said he is “not going into a deep thought of whether people accepted Channi’s face as CM candidate or not”.

“You reap what you sow…This election was for a change…people took a great decision…public is never wrong…” he said.

Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won 92 seats out of the 117 Assembly seats in Punjab, while Congress got 18 seats, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won two seats, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) three seats and Bahujan Samaj Party one seat. (ANI)
