Now, Sidhu Asks Muslims To Vote En Bloc

Punjab Minister and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday warned Muslims not to split their votes and instead defeat BJP by voting against it unitedly.

His comments come in the wake of Election Commission’s recent gag order on BSP chief Mayawati for similar remarks made at a rally in Deoband, Uttar Pradesh.

“I am here to warn my Muslim brothers. They (BJP) are dividing you. By bringing people like (Asaduddin) Owaisi in here (Katihar), by making a new party stand for elections, they want to divide your vote for winning. If you people unite and vote unitedly then everything will overturn and Modi will be finished,” said Sidhu.

“This will be a sixer. Hit such a sixer that Modi is sent out of the boundary,” Sidhu added by invoking reference of cricket, a sport which he had retired from after playing in the national team.

Meanwhile, the BJP said it has approached the Election Commission against Sidhu. “We met Election Commission and made them aware of Navjot Singh Sidhu’s statement made at a rally in Katihar, earlier in the day,” Bihar BJP Vice President Devesh Kumar said. “They said they have seen the footage and have assured us that necessary action will be taken,” he said.

At a press conference in New Delhi Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also called out the cricketer-turned-politician for his polarising comments.

Earlier on April 11, Sidhu had slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the country will get finished if he becomes the Prime Minister for the second term. “If Modi comes to power for the second term, then the country would be finished,” Sidhu had said.

Lok Sabha elections in Bihar are being held in all seven phases where grand alliance of . The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
