Aam Aadmi Party MLA Raghav Chadha on Friday called Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu "the Rakhi Sawant of Punjab politics" after the former cricketer criticised the AAP and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over farm laws.

Addressing mediapersons, Raghav Chadha said "nobody takes Congress' Navjot Singh Sidhu seriously".

"Sidhu is considered to be the Rakhi Sawant of Punjab politics. He was recently reprimanded and scolded by the Congress high command for his non-stop attacks on Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. As a result of which Navjot Singh Sidhu today began ranting against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal," he said.

"We just have to wait for a day and Sidhu will resume his diatribes against Captain Amarinder once again. Sidhu's vision is like an unguided missile," said the AAP national spokesperson.

Earlier in the day, Sidhu, who shared a video on his official Twitter, tweeted, "Exploitation of farmers and decreasing prices even on crops where MSP is announced - Arvind Kejriwal Ji you notified the Private Mandi's central black law! Has it been de-notified or the masquerading is still going on @AamAadmiParty @AAPPunjab."

Later, hitting back at Raghav Chadha after the 'Rakhi Sawant' remark, Navjot Singh Sidhu said the former was still descending from the apes and the monkeys.

Since November 26, farmers have been protesting at the borders of Delhi against the three farm laws: Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020. Farmer leaders and the Centre have had several rounds of talks, but the impasse continues.
