Senior Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday further intensified his attack on Capt Amarinder Singh, claiming that failure of the SIT probe into the Kotkapura police firing was not the failure of the government or the party, but one person who was hand in glove with the culprits.
In his post shared on his Twitter handle, the former Cabinet Minister said, “it was a carefully crafted collusive abetment.” He ended it with a one-liner “Hum to dubenge, tumhe bhi le dubenge’.
Sidhu’s barb on collusion comes almost two years after he while speaking at an election rally in Bathinda, had spoken of a “friendly match” with regard to “inaction” by the state government against culprits of sacrilege incidents.He had then appealed to the Congress rank and file to “defeat those who are in collusion (with opponents) and damaging the interests of the party”. A month later he had resigned from the Punjab Cabinet. This time as well, he did not name anyone, but he reiterated no action has been taken so far against the SAD leaders who had a role in sacrilege incidents and police firing cases. Waiting for order of the High Court that quashed SIT probe into the firing incident, the CM and Cabinet ministers are yet to respond to attack by Sidhu.
