Attacking BJP MLA Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu over her remarks against Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh, Congress spokesperson Nimisha Mehta on Tuesday questioned her on what she delivered to the people of her constituency despite being in power for so many years. Dr Sidhu had said that Captain was not the right alternative for Punjab.

Mehta said Dr Sidhu was expecting Capt to deliver even when he was not in power in the state, while she herself proved to be a “curse” to the people of her constituency despite being part of the ruling alliance.

The Congress spokesperson said Dr Sidhu has only worked to glorify her image through media. “Had she set aside her ego she could have got some development works done in her constituency. Today thousands of people in Amritsar east are suffering because of her ego clash with Akalis,” she said.

Accusing Dr Sidhu of being apathetic to interests of her constituency, Mehta said she should have resigned when she knew the things were not working out, and people of her constituency could have been saved from the suffering. “But she rather remained glued to the chair and her red-beacon vehicle,” said Mehta.
