Punjab Congress leaders have started getting restive over Navjot Singh Sidhu’s continued diatribe against Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s government, with some asserting that the cricketer-turned-politician was transgressing the ‘line’ far too often.
As polls approach in few months, leaders say Punjab Congress chief Sidhu’s social media digs against his own party’s government are not only denting the party image but also hindering its election prospects.

Commenting on Sidhu’s threat to go on a hunger strike if the Channi government does not release reports on the drug menace and 2015 sacrilege cases, Congress MLA Kulbir Singh Zira said: “The issues that are being raised by Sidhu might be correct but there is a party platform for that. He is the (state unit) president of the party and he can raise it directly with the Chief Minister rather than choosing a public platform.’’
