Asserting that he is not here to fight 'personal battles', Sidhu said Punjab, Punjabis and Punjabiyat need to win in the upcoming assembly polls.

"I want to tell all the Congressmen and the Punjabis to cast their votes for establish religion. Punjab, Punjabis and Punjabiyat need to win this time. He who joins gets respect....and he gets insulted who divides," Sidhu said.
