Punjab: After Congress leader Partap Singh Bajwa said former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Navjot Singh Sidhu would join their party on the auspicious day of Diwali, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday said the cricketer-turned politician is a human bomb and will explode once he enters the grand old party.
Badal told mediapersons that Congress’ state party chief Captain Amarinder Singh is trying to downplay Bajwa by saying that he has no objection to Sidhu joining the party, adding the reality is that they both abuse each other.
“At places they abuse each other. They are not gifting anything to the people, they are giving gifts to each other. They want to harm each other and Sidhu is a human bomb and will go and explode there,” Badal said.
Earlier on Tuesday, Bajwa said the matter of Sidhu joining the Congress was under the high command’s consideration while sarcastically adding that Sidhu may get a ‘Diwali gift’.
