Chandigarh, December 10, 2018: In the wake of Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s revelation that Kartarpur Corridor was a conspiracy hatched by Pakistan Army and ISI against India, the BJP today asked the Congress Chief Minister as to how he would justify keeping Navjot Singh Sidhu in his cabinet.
Tarun Chugh, the national secretary of the BJP asked Capt Amarinder to throw away Sidhu out of his cabinet.
Chugh said how a Chief Minister after having such sensitive information could keep a minister who was advocating the cause of conspiracy hatched by Pak Army and the ISI.
Chugh said Amarinder’s revelation that Pak Army Chief General Bajwa had informed Sidhu about Pakistan government’s plan to open Kartarpur Corridor even before Imran Khan was sworn as Prime Minister has made the issue all the more serious.
“This seems a plan of the Pak Army and the ISI and not the government that was yet to be sworn in,” he said.
The BJP leader said it was highly intriguing that a Chief Minister who comes forward to make a highly sensitive and information based statement regarding the game-plan of Pakistan, chooses to keep a minister who was working for the execution of the plan.
“It is for the first time that an elected representative and a minister in a statement government was doing so after taking oath of loyalty to the constitution of the country,” he said.
Chugh said, “Not only this, Sidhu at the instance of Rahul Gandhi, was showering praises on the leadership and Army Chief of an enemy country, responsible for ordering the killings of Indian soldiers on international border for disturbing the internal peace and the unity and integrity of India by helping terrorists to infiltrate India and organizing training camps for them.”
