The crisis in Punjab politics still continues and it appears far from over. A video went viral where it is seen Mr Navjot Singh Sidhu using foul language against Punjab Chief Minister, Mr Charanjit Singh Channi during Thursday’s protest march against the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.
The viral video shows that Navjot Singh Sidhu is quite furious against Mr Channi for making him wait for him. Thereby, Mr Sidhu in his words said, “This man (Channi) will sink the Congress in 2022 (assembly election)”.
The viral video was apparently shot near the Mohali Airport, where the leaders of Congress and the mass gathered to carry forward their protest against the deadliest violence that took place in the Lakhimpur Kheri. Although, the convoy was seen waiting for the CM for a long time because of the delay caused due to Traffic congestion.
The video also clearly shows that the party leader, Mr Pargat Singh handling the situation and telling Sidhu that CM Charanjit Singh Channi should be reaching any moment now. Sidhu in his response said, ‘We have been waiting for him so long. Where Pargat Singh tries to divert Sidhu’s attentions towards the crowd for the protest march. Thereby, Mr Singh said in his words, “This event is a success… aaj to balle balle ho gayi”. But Sidhu in his furious reply said, “What success…had son of Bhagwant Singh Sidhu (Navjot Sidhu’s father) been made the CM…I would have shown them success”. This irresponsible statement caught on camera from the cricketer turned politician might cost a lot for the party in the forth-coming election assumed by the community of political scientists.
