New Delhi:

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu who took oath as a cabinet minister in the new Congress government in Punjab on Friday said that he is a soldier of Captain Amarinder Singh and Rahul Gandhi.

“I will work for the people of Punjab. I have no qualms about any rumoured posts. This whole Deputy CM controversy was all a creation of social media”, Sidhu said.

Sidhu made it clear that he won’t quit Television. “People don’t mind me doing TV while looking after my official post as Punjab Minister, had there been a problem with my priorities, people wouldn’t have voted for us in such majority. After finishing my daily routine work as minister, I would leave for Mumbai and then be back to Punjab by return flight to carry on my work as minister. Then why would anybody mind me being in TV and cabinet minister at the same time?”
