1988 road rage case: Punjab govt's hypocrisy exposed, says Harsimrat

Punjab government urged the Supreme Court on Thursday to confirm the conviction of their own minister Navjot Singh Sidhu in a road rage case that he was involved in 1988 and sentence him to three years in prison.

Asked if he was surprised by the government's stand, Mr Sidhu said, "I don't have any reactions". "The matter is subjudice and I can not react on it", a visibly upset Sidhu said in his response to the Punjab government stand at a media interaction in Hyderabad on Friday morning.

According to CNN News18, the lawyer appearing for the Punjab government told a bench of Justices J Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul that the statement given by the former cricketer denying his involvement in the case is false.

The Tourism, Culture and Local Government minister on Friday said the "explanation" for the state government's stand in the Supreme Court can be given by the chief minister. It told the Supreme Court that the Punjab and Haryana High Court was correct in convicting its incumbent minister.

"Even in the Assembly, Khaira acted as more loyal than the King and came to the help of the Congress government whenever we cornered it on issues of public interest. He can not remain a member of a government", Akali leaders Bikram Singh Majithia said. "Similarly, in this case also, he is happy to be seen with Sidhu rather than the poor family that has lost an innocent member at his hands", SAD alleged. Aam Aadmi Party MLA and the Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira said, "It is now up to Sidhu whether he can sit in the same Cabinet and the government which finds him guilty".

Concluding his arguments, Saron had said the trial court was wrong in its finding the man died of cardiac arrest and not brain hemorrhage.
