The Punjab Council of Ministers following the state government’s endorsement of his conviction in a murder case. Accusing the Congress government of playing a fixed match with Sidhu, the SAD demanded that the govt must stop shielding the murder convict sitting amidst them in cabinet meetings.
“ The continued presence of Sidhu in the Punjab cabinet is not only utterly untenable on moral grounds but is also a grave legal and constitutional absurdity, mocking the constitution of India. He cannot remain a member of a government which is seeking a judicial endorsement to punish him for murdering an old, innocent and helpless person . This has created the strangest situation in the history of independent India,” said the Akali leaders , Bikram Singh Majithia, Dr Daljeet Singh Cheema and Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal

The Akali leaders also accused the Aam Admi Party leader Sukhpal Singh Khehra of being a part of a conspiracy to shield Navjot Singh Sidhu. “It is strange that in stead of standing by the innocent victim’s helpless family, Mr Khehra is supporting the minister in this government under a well-planned conspiratorial script.”
