Amritsar: Indian cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur who resigned from Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) yesterday asked question from the BJP over the silence on the mafia rule in Punjab state.
Navjot asked that why BJP has maintained silence on the mafia ruling in Punjab. She referred mafia word for the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal with whom the BJP is in ally with Akali Dal since 2007.
Kaur, who resigned from the BJP on Saturday, told the media persons, “Before joining the alliance, they should have told us that we are not supposed to open our mouth. Whatever wrong was happening, we were supposed to just look away and support the wrongdoings. We were supposed to support the entire mafia and not allowed to point out anything.”
She accused Akali Dal leaders, especially to Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia of running a mafia in the state.
