On Wednesday, in a video released on Twitter, Sidhu slammed the induction of tainted MLAs into Channi’s cabinet and the appointment of tainted officials as Punjab’s Advocate General.

“I don’t have any personal rivalry with anyone; 17 years of my political career has been for a purpose, to make difference,” Sidhu said, stating that his mission is only to “make the lives of the people of Punjab better”.

“I can’t compromise with my ethics, moral authority. What I witness is a compromise with issues, and agenda in Punjab. I can’t mislead the high command nor can I let them be misled,” Sidhu further said.
