Chandigarh: After months of speculation, Ex-Cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu has joined Congress party before the upcoming Punjab elections. As he joined Congress and prepared to attack ruling SAD-BJP government in Punjab, SAD has launched the first offensive by asking Sidhu to explain his first ball duck against Waqar Younis.
Navjot Singh Sidhu was clean bowled by Waqar Younis off the very first ball in Sharjah during a match in 1990, a fact often brought up by Kapil Sharma on his show.
“Before he questions our government’s performance, he should explain his first ball duck against Waqar Younis in Sharjah. When he himself couldn’t perform, who is he to question our performance? In fact, whenever the question of this duck has been raised during Kapil Sharma show, Sidhu has tried to silence Kapil by throwing cushion at him. What is he afraid of, why doesn’t he want this question to be raised in public? Let him clarify this in public”, Akali Dal spokesperson said while addressing the media.
Further, he added ,”It is not the only first ball duck he scored against Pakistan either. Even in his last ODI, he scored a first ball duck against the same team. What are his links with Pakistan, what explains these first ball ducks? We know that only Pakistan is responsible for drugs trade in Punjab so Sidhu’s relationship with Pakistan must be clear before the state goes to polls.”
When we asked Mr. Sidhu for a response to this, he started chasing us with his shoe in his hand.
Meanwhile, after hearing this line of attack by their alliance partner, PM Narendra Modi has conceded that Punjab is indeed facing a severe drugs problem.
