The petty politics behind NRI allegations, says Navjot Singh Sidhu : The Tribune India
Amritsar, January 29
A day after NRI Suman Toor claimed she was the sister of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chairman Navjot Singh Sidhu and made serious allegations against him, Sidhu broke his silence on the matter.
I can’t bring my mother back
I cannot bring back my mother, who died 40 years ago, to respond to Suman Toor’s allegations. My adversaries play petty politics. Navjot Singh Sidhu, Head of the Cong State
Speaking to the media as he filed his candidacy on Saturday, he called it petty politics on the part of his opponents. He said he could no longer bring his mother, who died 40 years ago, back to respond to Toor’s allegations. Under no circumstances would people tolerate such a cheap policy.
Sidhu targeted his rival candidate Akali Bikram Singh Majithia, SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal and former captain CM Amarinder Singh for resorting to cheap politics.
Sidhu said the SAD, which won 15 seats in the last election, would score even lower. He alleged that Akali rulers resorted to hooliganism and authoritarianism during their rule. “Bikram was selling drugs and harboring goondas. So people would never accept them,” Sidhu said, challenging Majithia to compete from a single seat if he was so confident.
Meanwhile, Sidhu’s daughter Rabia Sidhu shared a photo of her grandfather Bhagwant Singh Sidhu and little Navjot sitting in a study room. She pointed out that even in this photo, her father was alone. This way she also refused to accept Toor as her parent.
