The Hush Post: After renouncing the post of Punjab Warehousing Corporation’s chairperson, former Punjab CPS Dr. Navjot Kaur Sidhu today hit back at Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia and BJP leader Anil Joshi terming them “illiterate fools”. “Joshi, Majithia and such like illiterate fools have no right to comment because they and their kin have amassed unlimited wealth through corruption”, she said in a post written on her Facebook account, referring to the charges levelled by the SAD and the BJP against her husband and cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu.
The Akali Dal and the BJP had accused her husband of nepotism after she was appointed as chairperson of the Punjab Warehousing Corporation while son Karan Singh Sidhu was made a law officer.
Retaliating, Dr. Sidhu said, “We are not unemployed, sifarshi or less educated, non-deserving people. “Don’t compare us with uneducated fools who get plum posts because of power”.
“Punjab will be a different place if honour merit rather than giving power to corrupt, less educated and egoist power hungry fools who need to be thrown out of Punjab”, she added.
Earlier on Saturday, Navjot Singh Sidhu had announced that his wife and son won’t be joining office after the Opposition had cornered him for ‘favoring’ his family.
