SAD Asks Rahul Gandhi to Expel Sidhu from Congress For Pak Controversy

[Chd,Pb]SAD Asks Congress to Expel Sidhu from Party For Pak Controversy
Shiromani Akali Dal Saturday asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi to expel Punjab Cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu from the party for calling for dialogue with Pakistan even after the Pulwama terrorist attack in which 40 CRPF jawans died.
Though Sidhu had condemned the “cowardly” attack by a Pakistan-based terror group, he had also called for dialogue to find a “permanent solution” to end the bloodshed.
Sidhu, who had attended the swearing-in ceremony of Imran Khan as Pakistan prime minister last year, had said, “For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?”
SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia said if the Congress president does not sack Sidhu, it would mean his statement was “made at the direction of Rahul Gandhi”.
The Akali leader said the credibility of Chief Minister Amarinder Singh was also on test.
