JALANDHAR: A day after Punjab advocate general A P S Deol attacked Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu and accused him of “obstructing the functioning of the government and the office of the advocate general”, the PCC chief hit back at him with a series of tweets.
Turning up the heat on his appointing authority, Sidhu asked Deol: “Are you acting at the behest of those who appointed you in this constitutional office and fulfilling their political gains? Did you advise the government to challenge the blanket bail order procured by you or any other adverse order in sacrilege cases in Supreme Court?”
He questioned the stand taken by Deol in the Punjab and Haryana high court on the issue of acting on STF report on drugs and accused him of “shielding the inaction of the government under the guise of your own unknown ethics” and of his “earnest inaction is clearly subverting justice rather than ensuring it”.
A month after announcing his resignation as state Congress chief, Sidhu withdrew it on Friday, but said he would resume charge only after AG is replaced and a new panel (with the name of the new DGP) named.
