Chandigarh: Former BJP MP Navjot Sidhu today claimed that his security cover has been withdrawn by Punjab government. He said that Punjab’s ruling party and BJP ally Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) was playing “petty” politics and hit him “below the belt”.
Navjot Sidhu who has open differences with SAD (Badal) leadership has been attacking Badal Dal during his election campaigns in Haryana. Withdrawal of Navjot Sidhu’s security cover comes close on the heels of his attack on Badal Dal in poll-bound Haryana, where it is in alliance with INLD.
“There were three security personnel provided to me for security. All of them have been withdrawn,” Navjot Sidhu reportedly told a news agency.
“I will not shy away from saying the truth and will not buckle under any pressure. Those who walk the path of truth have nothing to fear. If they believe in playing petty politics, what one can say,” the former MP from Amritsar said.
Navjot Sidhu’s wife Dr. Navjot Sidhu, BJP MLA from Amritsar (East) and Chief Parliamentary Secretary in the SAD-BJP Punjab government was also critical of the decision of the government.
She said that Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his Deputy, Sukhbir Singh Badal will be directly responsible if anything happens to her husband.
“Earlier today, a security personnel attached with him got a call from his higher ups that all three personnel should immediately withdrawn from the security duty after which they left,” she said.
