Sidhu-Majithia spat rocks Punjab assembly

By 22nd March 2018 0 Comments

An ongoing spat between local bodies minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia over a drug racket case resonated in the Punjab assembly on Thursday.
Sidhu and Majithia, whose antipathy towards each other is no secret, got into an argument without any serious provocation, shouting at the top of their lungs on the third day of the budget session. The exchange degenerated into accusations and finger-pointing, with a visibly agitated Sidhu repeatedly calling the Akali leader names that were immediately expunged by speaker Rana KP Singh. As his repeated requests failed to calm things down, the speaker adjourned the House for half an hour.
