Former cricketer and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was in controversies due to his statements, now seems to be surrounded by difficulties. Bihar Police has been searching for Navjot Singh Sidhu from the past three days in Amritsar. But Sidhu has not come forward yet. Navjot Singh Sidhu often comes in the headlines by making controversial statements before he was included in the BJP party.
According to media reports, Sidhu has been accused in the case number 93/19 lodged in Barsoi police station of Katihar that he gave an inflammatory speech during the campaigning for Congress candidate Tariq Anwar on 16 April 2019.
Katihar Reserve Superintendent Vikas Kumar said that the officers investigating the case Janardan Ram and Javed Alam have been sent to Amritsar. Both these officers have been in Amritsar for the last 3 days but till now accused Navjot Singh Sidhu is absconding. At present, both officers are involved in the investigation of the incident.
The SP said that Navjot Singh Sidhu gave a controversial speech during the election campaign at Balrampur Legislative Assembly in Katihar. In which, while addressing the Muslim voters, he said that AAP (Muslim community) is a minority here and a majority.
He said that if you show solidarity, no one can beat your candidate Tariq Anwar here. Here your population is 64 percent, here the Muslim is our turban. If you have any problem, remember me, I will support you in Punjab too.
During the speech, Sidhu targeted the opponents and further said that these people are dividing you among themselves. Muslims are dividing the community. He wants to distribute votes by bringing forward people like Owaisi so that he can win.
Sidhu did not stop at this and further said that if you people come together with 64 percent, then everything will be reversed and Modi will go to Salat (lose). This time in the elections, hit sixes so that Modi crosses the boundary. Many leaders have filed objections regarding this speech and a case was also registered against them at Barsoi police station.
