Chandigarh: SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Friday alleged that nothing Navjot Singh Sidhu says can be taken at face value as he is working as a “paid employee” of Congress.
Claiming that Sidhu has always been ready to “sell himself to the highest bidder”, he alleged, “Sidhu is working as a paid employee of Congress. Yesterday he was with BJP, after that with AAP and now with Congress. Tomorrow he may be with someone else.”
“Like his political parties, Sidhu has also changed his political Gurus repeatedly,” Sukhbir said in a statement.
“Earlier he used to call Arun Jaitely as his political guru. But when his guru came to Amritsar to contest the Lok Sabha elections he abandoned his guru,” the SAD president alleged.
“Then he made AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal his guru for a short period before choosing Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi. This is the same Rahul whom Sidhu used to call ‘Pappu’,” he alleged.
Asking people how can they trust someone who has “changed his political gurus” with so much ease, Sukhbir said, “Sidhu should first tell Punjabis why he did not find Punjab full of drugs when he contested thrice from Amritsar as a BJP candidate.”
“At that time he (Sidhu) used to openly admit that he had won because of SAD and that he would not be able to repay this debt,” he said.
“The truth of the matter is Sidhu is trying to please Rahul Gandhi at the cost of the youths of Punjab. Rahul’s claim that 70 per cent youth of Punjab are drug addicts has already been disproved by various surveys and agencies,” the SAD president claimed.DP
