Amid a rift between Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and newly-appointed Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took a jibe at the grand old party.
Enjoying the rift in Punjab Congress crisis, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson RP Singh took a dig at the Congress party with his tweet in Hindi that read, “Khela Shuru… Sidhu 62, Captain 15”.
It comes after the newly-appointed Punjab Congress President invited all the MLAs for breakfast at his residence. About 62 of them arrived at the cricketer-turned politician’s residence out of the total of 77 Congress legislators.
The ‘breakfast’ of Navjot Singh Sidhu comes a day after Captain Amarinder Singh‘s media advisor said that the Punjab chief minister will not meet the PPCC president till Sidhu publicly apologizes for his derogatory social media attacks against him (Captain).
On this, several Congress MLAs who attended the breakfast meeting said that there was no need for an apology.
“Why should Sidhu apologize (to CM)? It’s not a public issue. CM has not solved many issues. In that case, he should also apologize to the public,” said Congress MLA Pargat Singh.
Meanwhile, MLA Madan Lal Jalalpur claimed that the party will win the 2022 Punjab Assembly election because of Sidhu. CM’s advisers were misleading Captain, he said, adding that Punjab was going backward due to this.
Amid tussle with Captain Amarinder Singh, Navjot Singh Sidhu was appointed as Punjab Congress president on July 18.
