Taking a dig at the Congress government, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and former minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Friday said as part of chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s ‘Ghar Ghar Naukri’ promise nobody got any job except local bodies minister Navjot Sidhu’s family.

Majithia said this while canvassing for party candidate Naib Singh Kohar in the Shahkot assembly constituency.

The statement came a day after Sidhu’s son was appointed as an assistant advocate general by the state government. Earlier, his wife was made chairperson of the Punjab Warehousing Corporation.

Addressing a public meeting at Dandowal, he asked the people to “teach a lesson to the arrogant Congress government for betraying every section of society in the forthcoming bypoll going to be held on May 28.

“The defeat of the Congress candidate and sand mining mafia kingpin Hardev Singh Ladi is the only way to wake the government from its slumber and force it to implement the promises made to the people,” the Akali leader said.

“The minister (Sidhu) seemed be behaving like a ‘budhu (idiot),” Majithia said. He said the Congress’ campaign was unravelling in the constituency with a large number of people leaving it to join SAD.

“It is because of this that all ministers are being pressed into service to save the party from a humiliating defeat. Even the chief minister is finally climbing down from the hills and will be seen in Shahkot on Saturday,” he said.
