Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh on Monday said the state government will take legal opinion on whether his minister Navjot Singh Sidhu can continue to work on TV.

"We will have to ask our Advocate General to give us an opinion... whether a person who is a minister can do what he wants to do. It will depend entirely on what legal position is," Amarinder Singh said in an interview on India Today TV.

He was responding to a question on Sidhu's decision to continue working on TV even after becoming a minister in the state.

He said he will continue to be part of the popular TV programme, "The Kapil Sharma Show".

Speaking on his relationship with Sidhu, the Chief Minister said: "I have always had a very warm relationship with him and his family. They are Patiala family. The families have known each other a long time.

"It is only in the political field we have been rivals in last couple of years."

"I am sure we will get on well... he has given me a lot of respect, I don't expect any problems from him at all," he added.
