New Delhi, News24 Bureau, May 19: Amid the big drama that is going on in Punjab among the senior Congress leaders, comes a very big statement from the chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh who says that Navjot Singh Sidhu is eying the chief minister's chair.

Very smartly Amarinder Singh has put forth his opinion, "There is no war of words with Navjot Singh Sidhu, if he is ambitious, it's fine, people have ambitions. I have known him since childhood, I have no difference of opinion with him. He probably wants to become CM and replace me, that is his business."

All is not well between the two and their differences have come to the fore on many occasions. 

Recently there was a war of words between Amarinder Singh and Sidhu's wife Navjot Kaur when the latter was denied ticket from Amritsar. Previous to this she was also hopeful about a ticket from Chandigarh and was denied that too. 

To this, the CM had responded that Mrs Sudhu herself denied a ticket from Amritsar. Then Navjot Singh Sidhu had to interfere and said that his wife never tells a lie.
