There Is Displeasure Among People Towards Sidhu: Congress MP

Chandigarh: Congress MP Gurjeet Singh Aujla said that people have displeasure towards Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu amid his use of sharp language against leaders. This is likely to affect his chances to win the assembly polls. He also said that Sidhu has not been among people in the last five years.

The Congress MP from Amritsar told ANI, “There is displeasure amongst people towards Sidhu. Being a national leader, in the last five years, he has given less time to them. Moreover, people have also disliked his way of speaking. It is likely to bring him harm.”

Sidhu has been vocal about several issues like drugs and sacrilege incidents, has used disrespectful language on public forums, said Aujla.

Aujla further said that many look up to him, he should not use disrespectful language. He said, “Sidhu is a big leader. A lot of people look up to him and follow him. He should not use objectionable language against leaders including those of the opposition parties. A big leader should be disciplined in his speech because he has to lead the state and the country.”

He said that despite Sidhu being a star campaigner, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi had to take over campaigning on his assembly seat to vouch for him.

Amritsar is witnessing a fight Sidhu will take on former state minister and senior Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia, who is the brother-in-law of Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has fielded Jeeven Jyot Kaur from the seat.

Speaking about the seat battle, Aujla said there is a “triangular” political battle on the Amritsar East assembly seat. “With the mobilization by the AAP and Akali Dal on the Amritsar East seat, there is a triangular battle,” he said.

Amritsar particularity holds great prestige value for all parties.
