Congress star campaigner and Punjab cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu will not campaign for his party in his home state as Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has asked him not  to, his wife and former BJP MLA Navjot Kaur said on Tuesday.Amidst reports that the Minister's health was not allowing him to campaign, his wife also blamed the party's Punjab  in-charge Asha Kumari for not allowing Sidhu to campaign in Punjab."Captain Saab is the smaller captain and Rahul Gandhi is the bigger captain and he has given duty to him  (Sidhu) in other states and Navjot is busy campaigning there," she told reporters here."When Captain Saab and Asha Kumari have taken the lead role in ensuring victory of the  party in all (13) seats, then what is the need for Navjot (Sidhu) to campaign in Punjab?"The cricketer-turned-politician on Tuesday headed to Bihar to address a rally for  Shatrughan Sinha, the party's Patna Sahib candidate.Kaur, a former BJP legislator from Amritsar (East), also blamed the Chief Minister for denying her a ticket either from  Chandigarh or Amritsar."I was keen to contest from Amritsar (Lok Sabha seat) too but was denied the ticket. In fact Amarinder Singh was responsible for I not getting the ticket,"  she added.Kaur was also keen to contest from Chandigarh against BJP's sitting MP Kirron Kher.Crowd-puller Sidhu was conspicuously absent from Gandhi's two election rallies in  Punjab on Monday."Continuously speaking has severely impacted his vocal cords to the extent that they bled at times," a statement issued by Sidhu's office said on  Monday.Sidhu was scheduled to address public meetings in Patna Sahib, Bihar, on Tuesday, Paonta Sahib, Bilaspur and Nalagarh in Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday, and in  Madhya Pradesh on Thursday and Friday, completing his 32-day campaign, said the statement.Punjab goes to the polls in the final phase on May 19 for its 13 Lok Sabha seats.
