Talking about former cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu's entry into the Congress, Amarinder said he was hopeful of meeting the soon.

"Sidhu will play an important role in polls campaign in Punjab," he said.

Amarinder also criticised the over the Sutlej-Yamuna Link canal issue, saying Chief Minister Parkash Singh has not done anything to protect Punjab's river water for the past 10 years.
