Chandigarh: Union Minister and Punjab BJP chief Vijay Sampla on Thursday attacked cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, for his wife’s decision to join Congress, saying he has “bowed in the court” of Rahul Gandhi, whom he had once ridiculed as ‘Pappu’.
He also accused Sidhu of ditching Prime Minister Narendra Modi in making India ‘Soney ki chidia’ and becoming ‘Sonia ki chidia’.
On Wednesday, Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh had announced that Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu along with former Hockey Olympian Pargat Singh would be joining the party on November 28.
Congress sources had also said that Sidhu is also likely to meet the party leadership in the days to come and join along with his wife and Pargat Singh on November 28.
Kaur and Pargat were members of ‘Awaaz-e-Punjab’, an outfit formed by Sidhu along with the Bains brothers, Simarjit and Balwinder Singh.
“Sidhu, who once used to ridicule Congress Vice President (Rahul Gandhi) by calling him ‘Pappu’, has today bowed down in his court. The person, who used to claim that he will always standby for the interests of Punjab without fear of any loss or gain, today has joined the same bandwagon,” Sampla said.
