In a new statement, Congress Minister from Punjab, Navjot Singh Sidhu has accused Prime Minister Modi of being jealous of him because he was invited to attend Imran Khan’s oath-taking ceremony. Sidhu raised the Godhra bogey as well despite the fact that no evidence was ever found of Narendra Modi’s personal involvement in the riots as the then Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Is the PM jealous that he was not called (for Imran Khan’s oath ceremony)? Is he jealous that he went to Pakistan uninvited (for Nawaz Sharif’s birthday)? I’ll not prove my patriotism to people whose name came up in Godhra(riots case): Navjot Singh Sidhu, Congress pic.twitter.com/NSd4iCpUK1

Sidhu has come under severe criticism from all quarters for attending Imran Khan’s oath-taking ceremony as Prime Minister amidst the troubled relationship between the two countries in recent times. He was criticized by Punjab Chief Minister himself for hugging the Pakistani Army Chief.
People on social media were not pleased with Sidhu’s latest remarks accusing the Prime Minister of jealousy.
Dear @sherryontopp I’ll place my counter to your demented ideas in very polite words – My PM is welcomed with pomp in the US, Israel, Japan, Sochi, Wuhan, etc., and even when he went to Pakistan, he did it at his choice and whim unlike you who sucked up to the enemy chief. https://t.co/gGbKm1MCQe

But he can be loyal to those who killed his kith and kin in 1984. https://t.co/wmHsdYFztA

Some were wondering if he was issuing such statements to deflect attention from the Amritsar Tragedy.
Are you saying all this to ward off your shoulders the killings of numerous people in Amritsar? Are you saying all this to distract everyones’ mind? We’re really sorry we don’t want to hear any of this from a person due to whom so many innocent people lost their lives. https://t.co/gfjJ32Ejmw

We had reported earlier that a video had emerged where the event organizer could be heard boasting about people standing on railway tracks for Navjot Kaur, wife of Navoj Singh Sidhu before an incoming train killed many standing on those very tracks.
It appears that Sidhu’s inane remarks are only denting his already compromised reputation further.
