Former Punjab Cabinet Minister, Navjot Sidhu, who has been up in arms against the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh over sacrilege and police firing cases, has now come out in support of MLA Pargat Singh after he alleged receiving a threat call from CM’s political advisor.

Jalandhar Cantt MLA Pargat Singh on Monday during a press conference alleged that he received a call from Punjab CM’s Political Advisor Captain Sandeep Sandhu, who threatened him of a police case for raising voice against the CM on the issue of sacrilege and police firing.

Reacting to the development, Navjot Sidhu while sharing a video clipping of Pargat Singh, tweeted, “Ministers, MLAs & MPs raising People’s Issues are strengthening the Party, fulfilling their Democratic Duty & exercising their Constitutional Right... But everyone who speaks the truth becomes your enemy. Thus, you threaten your party colleagues, exhibiting your fear & insecurity".

Not just this, even Congress MP Partap Bajwa on Monday came out in support of Pargat Singh and in a series of tweets said, "Would have been pleasing to the eyes and ears of Punjabi's had the Vigilance knocked at the doors of Badal’s for their acts of omission & commission from 2007- 2017. Sudden spurt against Sidhu and colleagues is ill advised, ill timed & detrimental to interest of the Congress.''
