Amritsar: Senior Congress leaders and legislators have asked the estranged BJP legislator Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu to better mind her own business than trying to meddle in the affairs of other parties.
“Before pontificating and pointing fingers at others, you better prick your own conscience to realise whether it is fair on your part to condemn your own party and still enjoy the comforts of power that it has provided you,” they asked her.
“It is strange that when your own house is not in order, and you have been left lurching high and dry by everyone, you are commenting on the functioning of the Congress and its leader whose credentials are proven beyond any doubt,” party legislators said in a joint statement, while reacting to her comments about the Congress and the PCC president Capt Amarinder Singh, here on Tuesday.
The signatories to the statement included O P Soni, Rana Gurjeet, Kewal Dhillon, Rana Gurmeet Singh Sodhi, Sukh Sarkaria, Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa, Sukhjinder Randhawa, Gurkirat Singh Kotli, Navtej Cheema, Hardayal Kambhoj, Sangat Singh Gilzian, Sunder Shyam Arora, Rajneesh Babbi, Aruna Chaudhary, Gur Iqbal Kaur, and Bibi Harchand Kaur.
The Congress leaders said that Dr Sidhu was apparently feeling frustrated for the obvious reason that her own party had disowned her and the Aam Aadmi Party was not prepared to accept her and now she was trying to vent her frustration on someone else.
The party legislators said, Congress and Capt Amarinder Singh did not need any certificate from anyone, much less from someone who herself was not sure where she stood or belonged to.
“Yours is a classic case of keeping the cake and eating it too,” they told her while pointing out, while on the one hand she was criticising her own party and on the other hand she did not want to part with the comforts of power she enjoyed.
