The former Rajya Sabha member had on September 2 floated the new political front online. It will contest the Punjab assembly elections, slated for early next year.

“A press conference will be addressed by Sidhu on Thursday along with Pargat Singh and Bains brothers,” Simarjeet Bains said here on Wednesday.

With the formal launch of the new political outfit, Sidhu is likely to put an end to all speculation of his joining the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Pargat Singh was last month suspended from the Akali Dal for “anti-party” activities.
