Punjab Congress minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has triggered yet another controversy on Monday after he targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he does not know anything about nationalism and he should learn from UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

While addressing a rally in Sonia Gandhi's bastion Rae Bareli, Navjot Singh Sidhu launched an attack at the Prime Minister, alleging that she has become a puppet run by industrialists. 

"You talk about nationalism? You learn about nationalism from Sonia Gandhi. What nationalism you are talking about. You are a sellout. You are a puppet run by industrialists. You don't see development Narendra Damodardas Modi, because your intentions are wrong," Sidhu while addressing a rally in Rae Bareli. 

Later, the Congress's star campaigner claimed that he will quit politics if Rahul Gandhi loses in the Lok Sabha elections 2019, terming Congress' General secretaery Priyanka Gandhi as his 'Bigg Boss'. 

If Rahul bhai loses, I will quit politics. If Modi comes back to power, the nation will wipe out. I have to urge to make Rahul bhai, Priyanka ji my Bigg Boss and Sonia ji a part of your life and then see how this country will flourish.

While addressing a rally in Bihar's Purnia, Navjot Singh Sidhu had urged the '64 per cent Muslim population' in the region to vote to remove the government-led by PM Modi. 

"Muslim brother, people like Owaisi want to win by dividing the Muslim vote here. 64% is your (Muslim) population is in majority here and if you will get together and cast your votes, then Modi will be finished," said Sidhu in a public rally in Purnia on Tuesday.
