'CM Bhagwant Mann has no arrogance, very receptive': Navjot Singh Sidhu

Chandigarh/IBNS: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday praised Bhagwant Mann after they met and said the Punjab Chief Minister is "not arrogant and is receptive to others' viewpoint".

Sidhu on Sunday announced that he would meet Mann to discuss matters related to the revival of the state's economy.

After the meeting, the cricketer-turned-politician tweeted: "Most constructive 50 minutes spent… Reiterated the pro Punjab agenda that I have stood for years… Talked about means to generate income, it’s the only solution to end Punjab’s problem… CM @BhagwantMann was very receptive… Assured that he will deliver on people’s aspirations…"

The issues which were discussed at the meeting included the state's income from the liquor and sand mining sectors, cable monopoly, irregularities in the tender system and the alleged nexus between police, politicians and drug peddlers.

He said that he had been raising these issues during the previous Congress government. "I told him one thing that it is a question of Punjab's honour which should not be broken," he told reporters.

Since the humiliating defeat of the Congress in the recently concluded assembly elections, Sidhu has been praising Mann often.

After the election, Sidhu had to step down from the post of the state Congress chief.
