Kapil Sibal is an opportunist, says senior Congress leader
Chandigarh, November 21, 2020: In a scathing attack on veteran Kapil Sibal, Senior Congress leader from Gurdaspur M.M Cheema on Saturday criticized the minister on his recent comment on the performance of the Congress party in Bihar assembly elections and termed him an opportunist.
“Kapil Sibal is an extremely opportunist person who is just jumping from one state to another state for getting his adjustment as Rajya Sabha MP piggybacking the same Congress Party of which he is so critical publicly,” told M.M Cheema.
“His selective media briefing was a cheap publicity stunt. The minister highlighted some of the issues in front of the media where he was the culprit. It is clear that he is now playing into the hands of the forces which are out in the field to weaken the Congress party,” commented Cheema, member of AICC.
Recently, Sibal who has been dissenting against the functioning of Congress has termed the party as not being ‘effective opposition’ to BJP. While Kapil Sibal is defending his statement claiming that he is expressing the sentiments of millions of Congress supporters in the country, his comments have not gone down well with some of the party leaders.
Cheema who is also a veteran trade union member has further asked the Congress high command to take strict action against the party members who are trying to use the party for their vested interest.
