KATRA, Feb 2: Punjab Congress chief and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu visited Mata Vaishno Devi shrine, here today, amidst the exercise launched by his party seeking public opinion on the Chief Ministerial candidate.
Soon after reaching Katra, he straightaway went to the Bhawan on chopper and participated in the Evening Aarti.

“Warmth, love and affection at the heavenly abode is heart rendering…,” Sidhu tweeted along with a video of him entertaining requests for selfies from people who flocked around him.
The cricketer-turned-politician had earlier tweeted a picture of him in front of a chopper announcing his visit. “On my way to Mata Vaishno Devi… The eternal grace of the divine mother has always protected me on this path of Dharma… At her lotus feet for blessings… Dushtaan Da Vinaash Kr, Punjab Da Kalyaan kar (Destroy evil, bless Punjab)… Sach Dharam di sathapana kr (establish true faith)…,” he had tweeted.
It is pertinent to mention here that Punjab will go for Assembly election for 117 seats on February 20th.
Similar to what the Aam Aadmi Party had done in Punjab, Congress has been soliciting public feedback through IVR (Interactive Voice Response) calls for a few days now. The incumbent Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has often been rumoured to be the party’s favourite for the top job.
