Speaking about the elections in Punjab, Navjot Singh Sidhu, in an interview with CNN-IBN, says...
The sun is going to pierce through these clouds. There is going to be a new day coming in for Punjab. A new sun will shine in the state - the sun of Prakash Singh Badal. Prakash means light - there is going to be a new light in Punjab. The current rule of tyranny, which has spread fear in Punjab, which has looted Punjab, which has sold the interest of Punjab, where the interest of the poor has been ignored by the state government is going to come to an end. These elections will be the victory of good over evil.
