“The people of Punjab are looking for a change,” Said Mr. Sidhu, just before he resigned from the Rajya Sabha.

His exit will hit Punjab’s ruling Akali-BJP combine at a time which is seen to be facing a tough task retaining an upper hand in Punjab after two straight terms, challenged both AAP and a resurgent Congress.

He is likely to meet Mr. Kejriwal in Punjab in a couple of days.

Mr. Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur, a lawmaker in Punjab, is also set to resign, say sources.

“If he joins our party, we will welcome him with open arms,” said Bhagwant Mann, an AAP parliamentarian in Punjab.
