Sidhu’s sixer

a way with words

bric-1_1AFTER doing 52 rallies in the Delhi Assembly elections, the firebrand BJP leader, Navjot Singh Sidhu, was travelling from New Delhi to Mumbai in the executive class of a private airline.

Filmstars Saurabh Shukla, Raza Murad and AAP leader Gul Panag were also on the flight. Sidhu is usually well-dressed but it is easy to see that he is superstitious. The fingers of his right hand and wrist are covered with ruby, sapphire and coral rings and bracelets. Apart from this, there are many threads in different colours also tied on his right wrist. Perhaps unprecedented fame fills a man with trepidation.

While de-boarding, a passenger suggested that he should focus on Punjab now since the Akalis are in an appalling situation. Sidhu immediately retorted that the Akalis’ rule was draconian and they should be removed at once. Panag, the famous actress and now AAP leader, came and wished Sidhu. She said that her father had asked her to convey that he felt Sidhu deserved to be the next chief minister of Punjab. Sidhu lost no time in congratulating her for doing so well in Delhi and said that the day the BJP gives him charge of Punjab, he will invite her to join his party. Panag did not know where to look after Sidhu’s sixer.
