Navjot Singh Sidhu in a soup for ‘traitor’ talk

 

The Election Commission has sent a notice to Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu for prima facie violation of the model code of conduct in his comments against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mr. Sidhu gave the speech in Bhopal on April 29, following which the BJP lodged a complaint. He accused Mr. Modi of being a “traitor”, and alleged corruption in the Rafale deal. The poll panel, after examining the transcript, directed Mr. Sidhu to respond within 24 hours.
