This is Navjot Singh Sidhu’s biggest offensive against the Charanjit Singh Channi government as the Congress chief of the state unit said he will go on hunger strike if the Congress government does not publish reports on drug menace and the sacrilege incident.
Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday said he will go on a hunger strike against the state government if the Congress government does not make public the reports on drug menace and the sacrilege incident. Accusing his own government is not new for Sidhu as the Congress chief, in past, too seemingly carried out the role of ‘conscience’ as he continuously criticised the Amarinder Singh government leading to a major upheaval in the state as Amarinder Singh’s government was toppled. As Charanjit Singh Channi became the new chief minister, Sidhu continued his “war against injustice” while the apparent cracks between Channi and Sidhu regarding appointments were papered over.
With a few months ahead of the election, which will be more interesting this time because of the Amarinder Singh factor, Sidhu has become active on social media and is tweeting about the policies that he catalysed.
