Congress insists on protection to Navjot Singh Sidhu, for this reason


Concerned over the security of the Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, Congress wrote to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the issue.

The party sought Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) security cover for Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and cited growing threat perception to his life.

Congress’ chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that Sidhu needs to be provided CISF security cover as he will be travelling extensively outside Punjab to campaign for the party.

There are five states which are poll bound as of now and Sidhu is one of the most sought after star campaigners for speaking his mind.

In 2014, the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Punjab had withdrawn Navjot Singh Sidhu’s security cover, which was reinstated after protest, the Congress spokesperson said.

On November 16, Mr Sidhu began campaigning for the Congress in Chhattisgarh, where the second phase of assembly elections will be held on November 20.

The cricketer-turned-politician is among the several star campaigners selected by the party for campaigning in the state.</>
