Sidhu’s rant comes back to haunt: Posters in Ludhiana ask him to keep his promise of quitting politics if Rahul Gandhi loses Amethi

A day before, similar posters had appeared in Mohali

Posters asking Congress leader, Navjot Singh Sidhu, to keep up his promise of quitting politics if Rahul Gandhi loses from Amethi, comes up in Pakhowal road in Ludhiana, Saturday.

In April, Sidhu, while addressing a rally in Rae Bareli, had challenged that he would quit politics if the Gandhi scion loses election from his stronghold. Now his rhetoric has come back to haunt him as posters with a picture of Sidhu captioned read: When are you quitting politics? Time to keep your words. We are waiting for your resignation,” appeared in Ludhiana.

However, it still remains unclear who put up these posters on a roadside wall. This is not the first instance where people have been asking Navjot Singh Sindhu to quit politics and keep his promise. A day before, similar posters had appeared in Mohali.

In one of the biggest overturns in this Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi had lost from his home turf to BJP’ Smriti Irani by 55,120 votes.

However, Sidhu had then refused to believe that BJP’ Smriti Irani, who was standing opposite Rahul Gandhi from Amethi, is a tough competition for the Congress President. He refuted the BJP’ claim that no development work has taken place in the country in the last 70 years. He said that the country made everything from a needle to an aircraft during this period.

Navjot Singh Sidhu is currently serving as the Minister of local government, tourism, cultural affairs, and museums of the state of Punjab.

Recently, CM Amarinder Singh had stripped off the cricketer turned politician of the portfolios of local government, tourism, cultural affairs, and museums of the state of Punjab and offered him power and new and renewable energy sources ministry. However, even after two weeks of portfolio shuffling, Punjab power department still remains headless as Navjot Singh Sidhu, who had demanded the state Congress president’s post along with it, is yet to take charge of the power ministry.
