“I am sure he will serve people to the best of his ability and will spread the message of Congress party at grass-root level,” the CM tweeted.
Earlier, speaking on the occasion Punjab Congress chief Sidhu said that Moosewala created ripples in the Punjabi music world with his ever growing popularity, especially among the youth.
Sidhu tweeted “Champ” and said Sidhu-power has “squared” in the party “ek aur ek gyarah opposition 9/2/11” in a direct challenge to the BJP who he said “will now be scared of” after Moosewala joined the party.
He hoped his huge following will continue as he joins his parents’ footsteps to serve the cause of mankind.
Expressing his gratitude to Channi and Sidhu, Moosewala said that he was delighted to join the Congress as “it is the only political party which offers a healthy platform specially to ordinary people with modest background to serve the society diligently”.
