“Criminals and anti-social elements… their pants become wet on seeing a Punjab police,” Channi’s Jibe on Sidhu

Chandigarh: Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi took a jibe at Punjab Congress President Navjot singh Sidhu’s remarks on Punjab Police. He said that the pants of criminals and anti-social elements go wet when they see Punjab police. The question of who frightens whom into soiling their pants – police or criminals – is now the subject of a surreal back-and-forth between the two.

On Friday Channi hits back on Sidhu’s remarks of ‘Punjab Cops wet pants.’ He urged the police to not bother with the comment, and assured them that it was, in fact, criminals who wet their pants on seeing them.

“Those who are criminals and anti-social elements… their pants become wet on seeing a Punjab police officer,” the Chief Minister said at a function at the Punjab Armed Police (PAP) complex.

Channi’s retort comes after Navjot Sidhu’s declaration at a campaign event in Kapurthala district.

For good measure the former India cricketer then repeated his “Navtej Cheema can make a ‘thanedar’ policeman wet his pants” remark at a rally in Punjab’s Batala.

When reporters asked him about his remark, Sidhu indicated that it should not be taken literally. He said it’s a way of saying the Congress “wields authority”.

Praising two Congress leaders, Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu ended up creating a controversy. These remarks triggered furious protests from all quarters, including Mr Sidhu’s party, who have been quick to denounce him to potentially stop hemorrhaging votes.

Ravneet Singh Bittu, the MP from Punjab’s Ludhiana, has backed state police personnel and praised them for their handling of terrorist activities and COVID-19.

“First of all, whatever has been said about the police, I seek apology…” he said, adding, ” “How will they protect people if we use wrong words against them…”

Chandigarh DSP Dilsher Singh Chandal has filed a defamation case against Mr Sidhu for “humiliating the police”, and a video message from a junior policeman, Sub Inspector Balbir Singh from Jalandhar, has been widely shared; “our children ask why such language is used against us…” he said in the clip.
