The Congress party is readying to field Navjot Singh Sidhu, the cricketer-turned-politician, as a part of their Karnataka election campaign. After regaining his freedom, Sidhu is set to launch his political career with an assignment in the southern state which will be going into polls next month. He is expected to address rallies throughout the state in support of the Congress party.

Sidhu has already made visits to prominent Congress leaders in the week that he was freed from jail, and he sees Karnataka as the perfect platform to relaunch his political career. In contrast to his campaigning in Karnataka, Sidhu is reportedly taking a slow approach in Punjab, where the Congress part recently installed a new team in the wake of their disastrous defeat in the elections against the Aam Aadmi Party.

Congress is the oldest and largest democratic political party in India. It has consistently worked to provide the nation with a democratically elected government, helping to make the voices of the people heard. The party has played a major role in India’s economic and social development since it’s independent.

Navjot Singh Sidhu is a cricketer-turned-politician. He has been politically involved since 2004 when he was elected to the Indian Parliament. He also was a major part of the Aam Aadmi Party and was a Core Member of its Political Affairs Committee. Sidhu was recently jailed for a road rage incident and after his release he’s ready to return to active politics starting with his campaign in Karnataka.
