Sidhu to campaign for BJP in Punjab

Times of India
CHANDIGARH: Besides a three years rigorous imprisonment, the Punjab and Haryana HC directed former MP Navjot Singh Sidhu and co-convict Rupinder Singh Sandhu to pay a fine of Rs 1 lakh each. In the event of failure to pay up, the two would serve six more months in jail. ...
...Inside the court, Sidhu, wearing a turquoise-coloured turban, sat composed. Flanked by senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley and the party's national council member Satya Pal Jain, he looked meditative, not a mood usually associated with him, as a large crowd of his admirers, many of them from his constituency of Amritsar, waited outside. ...
...He then sped off, along with Jaitley and Jain, to call on Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Parkash Singh Badal at his residence. The SAD-BJP alliance, which is the major opposition combine in Punjab right now, has been projecting Sidhu as their star campaigner for the assembly elections to the 117-member assembly, slated for early next year.
