Sidhu in fresh trouble for his remarks against PM Modi

Wednesday 15th May 2019 06:24 EDT

The Election Commission has issued a fresh show-cause notice to Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu for allegedly making disparaging remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He was given a day to reply to the notice. The poll panel had received a complaint from the BJP that Sidhu, during a rally in Madhya Pradesh on April 29, had made disparaging comments about Modi. He had reportedly accused the Prime Minister of “making money in the Rafale jet deal” and also “allowing” the rich to escape the country after “robbing” nationalised banks. The poll panel had in April censured Sidhu for allegedly warning the Muslim community against division of their votes in Bihar.
