MP Sidhu Says To His Congress Detractors: “When The Elephant Walks, A Thousand Dogs Bark”

AMRITSAR – Firebrand Amritsar MP Navjot Singh Sidhu today responded to the poster campaign against him in his trademark style with a one-liner, “when the elephant walks, a thousand dogs bark”. He refused any further comment over the “silly and nasty campaign undertaken by a Congress leader against him”.

Sidhu’s reaction was released to the media through an e-mail by his political secretary Aman Sharma, who also launched a scathing attack on “incredulous and rootless leaders for their malicious campaign” against the three-time MP.

Though Sharma released the statement in his own name, it is being construed that Sidhu apparently chose to do the talking through his political secretary. Sharma made it clear that Sidhu, who repeatedly roared like a lion in Parliament and raised demand for the holy city status for Amritsar, had observed silence keeping in view the party discipline.

“Let the party get executed all his projects and restore due respect of his genuinely deserving supporters, my boss would immediately spring into action in his constituency,” he said. In his statement, Sharma said Congress leaders involved in anti-Sidhu poster campaign should start such a campaign against anti-Amritsar leaders, who had brought disrepute to the city by indulging in corruption and patronising drug-smuggling.

“Sidhu is a leader of masses who had won three consecutive elections. Sticking to his oath, he avoided visiting his family in his hometown Patiala for three years. He even sold one of his two houses in Patiala to build a house in Amritsar. If he is not coming to the city these days, there might be some valid reasons for it,” he averred.

He said people were aware that certain elements in the SAD-BJP alliance had created circumstances to “force an exceptionally honest politician to stay away from his constituency”.
