Imran Khan lobbied to make Sidhu a minister, reveals Captain


Punjab Lok Congress chief and former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said – Soon after the victory in the 2017 assembly elections, Navjot Singh Sidhu’s friend and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan recommended him to make him a minister.

Punjab: Captain Amarinder Singh, former Chief Minister of Punjab and chief of Punjab Lok Congress Party, has made a big disclosure. He said that in 2017, when the Congress government was formed under his leadership, then Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and his close friends had lobbied to make Navjot Singh Sidhu a minister. He also told Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra about it. Though Sonia did not respond, Priyanka had called Sidhu a ‘stupid’ in her reply.

In an interview with Dainik Jagran, the captain said that he had never met Imran Khan and did not know him personally, so he was not only surprised to see such a message, but also shocked that soon after the election a person was made a minister. How is the Prime Minister of another country and his close ones putting pressure? According to Captain, he immediately sent the message on mobile to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Sonia did not reply, but Priyanka wrote, ‘Stupid man who is getting such messages.’ At the same time, he was also advised to include Sidhu in the cabinet, but if he does some wrong in future, then remove him from the post of minister.

He has mentioned another incident about the former cricketer. He said that in 2017, when Sidhu was looking to leave the BJP and join the Congress, Sonia Gandhi had called to meet Sidhu and tell him about him. After this the captain called Sidhu for dinner in a hotel in Delhi. During the conversation, Sidhu took out the Shivling from his pocket and placed it on the table and said that he meditates for six hours daily and talks directly to God for three hours. When the captain asked what kind of things he had with God, he said that what will be the crop in Punjab, how much rain will be etc. According to Captain, he immediately told Sonia that this boy is not at all mentally stable. It will ruin the party. What happened after that and what is happening in Congress is in front of everyone.

Sidhu has no brain

At the same time, targeting the current Congress government, said that despite getting information about the involvement of Charanjit Singh Channi and some Congress leaders in illegal sand mining, the party did not take strict action against them. During his tenure, the captain has expressed regret several times for not taking action against those involved in illegal mining. Two days back, he had said, ‘I made only one mistake in my entire tenure. I did not take any action in the illegal mining case, because Sonia Gandhi did not allow it and I was loyal to the Congress.
