Taking a dig at Navjot Singh Sidhu’s fourth front, Awaaz-e-Punjab, deputy chief minister (CM) Sukhbir Singh Badal said Sidhu and his front have become a commodity and put themselves on sale.
Sukhbir said this on the sidelines of inauguration of Rs 100 crore dairy feed plant in Bathinda on Wednesday. “Sidhu is changing colours like chameleon and is now vying for best offer from other parties,” said Sukhbir.
“Such is the standard and calibre of the front leaders that they put themselves on auction and now they are negotiating with other parties,” Sukhbir said. “Earlier Sidhu wanted a Badal and Congress-free Punjab but after his meeting with Congress leaders, he has limited his statement to Badal-free Punjab only,” said deputy CM.
“If Akali dal will propose Sidhu a better offer, he will switch his statements to make Punjab an AAP-free state,” deputy CM said.
“Kerjiwal has shunned his responsibility as a chief minister and is now aiming towards gaining power in Punjab,” charged Sukhbir attacking AAP and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. “If Kejriwal can ditch people of Delhi, he can do the same with Punjab people,”deputy CM said.
While inaugurating dairy feed plant, being set up by Cargill Feed and Nutrition India, Sukhbir said Punjab’s investor summit has started yielding results as the plant was set up within two years of memorandum of understanding (MoU).
