After a racist attack at PM Modi, Punjab Minister and Congress leader, Navjot Singh Sidhu, on Friday night, made yet another controversial jibe at the BJP calling them 'Rafale ke dalal', while addressing the media in a rally in Indore, Madhya Pradesh.
"I have never made contradictory statements like Modi. But I have never feared from speaking the truth either. Truth always triumphs, never gets defeated. Hence I say, that they had come in 2014 chanting 'Namami Gange' claiming that they would clean Ganga calling themselves Ganga ke laal. Narendra Modi, you can complain if you want, but you will go back in 2019, you brokers of Rafale," said Sidhu.
Earlier in the rally, in his speech he made a shocking statement calling PM Narendra Modi, BJP, Kaale Angrez (British).
"Congress is the party that gave freedom to the country, it is the party of Maulana Azad & Mahatma Gandhi. They had given freedom from the British, now will give the people of Indore the freedom from Kaale Angrez (Unhone 'goron' se aazadi di thi aur tum Indore walo ab 'Kaale Angrezo' se iss desh ko nijaat dilayoge). We will give freedom from these chors and chowkidars," he said.
Previously, Sidhu had been at the receiving end of abuse when in Haryana's Rohtak constituency the crowd gathered was chanting 'Modi Modi' while he was addressing the rally. Following this, a woman reportedly threw a 'chappal' at the leader, which missed its mark. Later, when detained by the police, she revealed that she had thrown her shoe as they (Congress) was allegedly 'talking against Modi.'
Similarly, on May 10, Sidhu's rally saw a ruckus between Congress workers and BJP supporters, in his presence. Prime Minister Narendra Modi supporters overpowered Sidhu's rally with chants of 'Modi, Modi' in retaliation to which Congress party workers could be seen throwing chairs and targetting the sloganeers. Sidhu however asked the Modi supporters, "Are you running away from your Guru'.
Madhya Pradesh will see the high powered battle for Bhopal on Sunday when Congress veteran Digvijaya Singh will face BJP's Sadhvi Pragya who is an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blasts.
