The big buzz in Delhi, Punjab, Goa, Gujarat notwithstanding, the Aam Aadmi Party has time and again proved beyond doubt that political novices will pose a bigger threat to the nation than the external forces, who can be easily dealt with by the armed forces. Bhagwant Mann showed they are not yet fit for national politics.

The way AAP MP from Sangrur (Punjab), Bhagwant Mann filmed the sensitive locations and routes inside the Parliament and posted it on Facebook, it has shocked the nation. What’s more shocking was the defiance of Mann and silence of other AAP leaders, while cadres hailed him for bringing the secret out.

Be it a call for plebiscite in Kashmir or joining the cause of separatists and Maoists, the Aam Aadmi Party has shown they are yet to understand the meaning of national security – whether internal or external. The Mann episode just an eye-opener. It’s up to the people to judge them and their thoughts/ideology.

When he was playing cricket, he packed his bags, walked out of the England tour and returned to India due to differences with then captain Mohd. Azharuddin. And, today, he not only snubbed the BJP, but also the President of India, who nominated him to Rajya Sabha three months ago.

Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is known as an unpredictable person, quit Rajya Sabha after being denied a Ministerial berth in the recent Cabinet reshuffle. If we believe the sources, he has been offered the post of Campaign Chief of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab and will be made CM if the party comes to power.

Sidhu and his wife have been in touch with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders for a long time. On April 1, 2016, his wife, a MLA herself, had announced her resignation from the party on Facebook, but made a retreat later. BJP tried to woo Sidhu by nominating him to Rajya Sabha. But, that was not enough.

Sidhu knows AAP has a great chance of coming to power in Punjab, but lacks a strong local face to lead the party. He wants to fill up that vacuum. A CM’s post definitely looks lucrative. But, can he accept the AAP ideology he rejected not long ago? It would be interesting to see how Kejriwal handles Sidhu, who only listens to himself.

Hyderabad played a smart game this evening beating Punjab by 30 runs at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium. Now there will be tough competition between Hyderabad and Bangalore as the Punjab are almost on their way out with this loss.

Punjab won the toss but elected to field first. It was a good start from Hyderabad team, which showed a never-say-die attitude. Parthiv Patel (61 off 45) and Thisara Perera (32 off 19) did well, while Darren Sammy (4/22) starred with the ball to help Hyderabad to a comfortable 30 run win against Punjab. The team scored 150/7 (20.0 Ovs).

Chasing the target, Punjab fought hard. Except three (Adam Gilchrist, Luke Pomersbach, Rajagopal Sathish) not a single player could be able to collect good score. The team scored 120 losing 9 wickets.

Parthiv Patel was the MoM for his 61. This was Punjab’s last game at this venue and remaining two home games will be played in Dharamsala.

It was a memorable moment for Kolkata Knight Riders that won the tournament in the IPL 6 at their home Eden Gardens. The team beat Kings XI Punjab by six wickets in 18.02 overs tonight.

Punjab’s Azhar Mahmood had jolted Kolkata at the start when Gambhir and Yusuf were out. However, Jacques Kallis and Manvinder Bisla strung together a partnership that slowly got Kolkata back on track. After Kallis got out, Eoin Morgan looked firm on the ground and finished off the game with monstrous blows. Bisla returned to his form and scored his third fifty in the Indian T20 League.

Punjab were restricted to 149/6 in 20 overs after winning the toss. It was a fantastic effort by the bowlers of Kolkata team. The way Bisla (51), Kallis and Morgan (42) played was excellent. Kallis, who was injured in the previous game, fought with great energy. After losing two quick wickets, chasing target 150 was a good effort. Kallis was the MoM for his all-round display. He scored 37 off 33 balls and took two wickets.
