Chandigarh: Former cricketer, part-time politician, occasional minister, and full time comedian Navjot Singh Sidhu has assured millions of his fans that his TV work won’t be affected after he became a minister in the newly appointed Punjab government.
In the Amarinder Singh led government, Navjot Singh Sidhu has been given the portfolios of Local Government and Tourism & Culture Affairs. After this appointment, fans of Kapil Sharma show and Extraaa Innings were worried that they won’t get to see Sidhu again but the man has dismissed all these concerns now.
Speaking to the press in Chandigarh, Mr. Sidhu said ,”My opponents are spreading all these nasty rumors about me that I will give up Kapil Sharma Show or that I won’t be a part of IPL this year. Let me tell all my fans that this is all rubbish and I will continue to work on television. After all, work is worship.”
“I can understand the concern that this ministry-vinistry may interfere in my work but I am professional enough to carry out my duties despite the burden this ministry has placed on me. My first and foremost priority will remain my TV work and I will look at this ministry only during my spare time, if any. I never compromised with my TV work when I was an MP in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha so why will I start compromising now when I am an MLA?” Mr Sidhu asked.
When we asked Mr. Sidhu whether he is disappointed after missing out on deputy CM post, he said ,”As long as the post that I got doesn’t interfere with my TV work, I have no complaints.”
