Punjab Health and Family Welfare Minister Brahm Mohindra on Moday criticised his Cabinet colleague Navjot Singh Sidhu for his out-of-turn and untimely outbursts against the party leadership, the Chief Minister and the government, saying it amounted to sabotage.

In a strongly-worded statement, Mohindra said Sidhu has been in the Congress just for about two years and he has been trying to dictate terms and impose his own agenda and the high command must take serious note of it as this is harming the image of the party and the government. 

He said Sidhu must realise that he is no longer in BJP, but in the Congress and where there are multiple forums where he can raise all the issues he wants to, without damaging and sabotaging the party, as long as his intentions are sincere.

The senior minister maintained that both the Chief Minister and ministers were appointed by the party high command. It is the collective responsibility of all the ministers and not exclusively that of the Chief Minister alone, he pointed out, while asking Sidhu as why he never raised such issues at the relevant forum like the Cabinet and instead went public that too at a wrong time.

The Health Minister said he along with other cabinet colleagues would be writing to the party high command to restrain Sidhu from damaging the party further. He said it was shocking the way Sidhu spoke at a crucial time, just two days ahead of elections, with an obvious intent of sabotaging the party prospects, when everyone in the party was working hard for ‘Mission 13’ in Punjab.
