Chandigarh, May 1

Days after Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh launched a scathing attack on him, senior Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu hit back on Saturday sharing a 2016 video of Capt Amarinder "promising to send Badals to jail for Kotkapura firing incident".

Sidhu in his social media post said, “Big Boast, Small Roast ...

Big Outcry, No Outcome... #ਬੇਅਦਬੀ #Sacrilege #Bargari."

In an apparent provocative act, Sidhu compared the statement made by the Chief Minister in 2016 before the party rose to power in the state and the statement recently given to a private channel stating that law would take its own course and he could not interfere in the SIT probe. 

Soon after, Sidhu posted another video stating that he has shot a letter to Jathedar Akal Takht Sahib “for ex-communication of Badals”

He tweeted: “People of Punjab did not elect the High Court Judge, Blaming the Verdict for what is failure of Executive Authority will not be accepted. My Stand Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow - Justice for Punjab’s Soul ... Letter to Jathedar Akal Takht Sahib for Ex-Communication of Badals (2018).”

Over the last few days, the Chief Minister, while terming Sidhu an "opportunist", said he was not clear in which party he was and that he was alllegedly in talks with AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to join the Delhi CM's birthday. He had also dared Sidhu to contest against him from Patiala.

Sidhu had reverted by saying an Assembly seat did not matter in the fight for justice for the families of victims in the police firing cases.

Political analysts say while the Chief Minister camp was provoking Sidhu to leave the party, the latter was provoking the Capt Amarinder Singh camp to take action against him in backdrop of resentment among party leaders for the Congress government failing to act against the perpetrators of the scarilage and police firing cases.
