    If ever Navjot Singh Sidhu was patient or docile, it was during his cricketing days as an opener seeing off the pacers and waiting for the spinners, and not in his avatars as television commentator and politician, both characterised by plain-speaking and aggression. After he was denied the ticket from Amritsar by the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, he was merely biding his time to hit back at rivals within the party. Although he was nominated to the Rajya Sabha three months ago, Mr. Sidhu was by no means mollified. Just days after he took oath as member, he said he had earlier refused a Rajya Sabha seat offered as compensation for vacating Amritsar for Mr. Jaitley, and that he was again open to staying away from the Rajya Sabha.
