Patiala, June 26

Senior Congress leaders have been continuously meeting former state party president Navjot Singh Sidhu at Patiala Central Jail regularly, but none of them has visited former minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, who is lodged in New District Jail, Nabha.

Senior Congress leader and Anandpur Sahib MP Manish Tiwari on Friday met Sidhu in the jail. He, however, shied away from meeting Dharamsot lodged in prison just 25 km away. Congress MLA from Bholath Sukhpal Singh Khaira also met Sidhu recently, ignoring Dharamsot.

The Vigilance Bureau (VB) had, on June 7, arrested Dharamsot and two of his aides after having registered a corruption case against them. He was sent to judicial custody on June 14.

So far, only members of Dharamsot’s family have met him, sources say. What to talk of senior leaders, even former local legislators didn’t deem it fit to visit Dharamsot.
