On Monday, Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said he would file a defamation case against a television channel for allegedly running a fake video about slogans purportedly in support of Pakistan during his rally in Rajasthan’s Alwar district two days ago.
He said the slogans were of ‘jo bole so nihaal’ and was shown as in favour of Pakistan in the video.
He said to reporters, “I am going to file a defamation case after consulting with my lawyer. I cannot compromise with the name I have earned.”
Sidhu said he do not need to give any proof for loyalty towards India. Without clearly blaming the BJP, the Punjab Minister said such things were done because his campaigning was getting “tremendous response”.
Targeting the Narendra Modi government, Sidhu said he had raised questions related to farmers, minimum support price, demonetisation at the rally.
But, there was no answer to them and instead such videos were broadcast, he added.
