Will Cong take cognizance of Captain’s ‘extremely serious’ charge against Sidhu and act: BJP.
Seizing on outgoing Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh’s charge of anti-national against state Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu, the BJP on Sunday said Singh has voiced an issue which the country had been grappling with and asked the opposition party if it will take cognizance of the allegations and take action.
Senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar termed Singh’s charges ”extremely serious” and asked why Congress president Sonia Gandhi and its two other main leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have kept silent. ”Such an extremely serious allegation has been leveled by the chief minister against the party president, and the Congress is silent. What does it mean? We demand that the Congress should speak up and make its stand clear,” he told reporters. ”We want to ask if the Congress will take cognizance of such extremely serious allegations and take action,” Javadekar added.
