Chandigarh: Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia and Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu exchanged barbs in assembly in the aftermath of Pulwama terror attack.
The Opposition Shiromani Akali Dal on Monday sought dismissal of crickter-turned-politician and Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu for his ‘utterances’ in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.
Akali leaders led by Majithia burnt the photographs of Sidhu including those in which he was seen hugging the Pakistan Army chief outside the assembly.
It may be recalled that Sidhu visited Pakistan to attend the oath-taking ceremony of Pakistan premier Imran Khan, a cricketer-turned-politician, on August 18 last year.
Majithia remarked that even after passing a unanimous resolution in the House for condemning the Pulwama terror attack, Sidhu was still saying:“You cannot blame Pakistan, you cannot blame an individual.”
He said Sidhu should be thrown out of the cabinet for his utterances.
