Kaur said Rahul Gandhi at meeting in New Delhi yesterday assured the Cricketer-turned-politician of a “significant role in Punjab” if Congress formed government in the state.

She exuded confidence that Congress would sweep Punjab Assembly polls as people were fed up of the SAD-BJP rule and AAP had no roots in the state.
