The opposition has been continuously questioning the Punjab govt for not a single AAP MLA visiting Sidhu Moosewala’s residence since his death. Pratap Singh Bajwa, the leader of opposition and senior Congress leader, had tweeted on Wednesday:
“It’s been four days and not one M.P or Minister of ruling party AAP has visited the house of Sidhu Moosewala and stood by the family in this hour of grief. CM Bhagwant Mann ji is this what you meant when you said our Govt will be for AAM AADMI?”
Meanwhile yesterday, two AAP govt ministers – Harpal Singh Cheema and Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal went to Sidhu Moosewala’s house and met his family members at his residence.
After which, today, CM Bhagwant Mann visited Sidhu’s residence to condole his demise. Though, there was a heavy police deployment across the village. Earlier in the day, MLA Gurpreet Singh Banawali was blocked from entering the late actor’s house by some locals who were raising the slogans – “Aam Aadmi Party Murdabad”. The MLA urged the people to allow him, but when they didn’t, he had to go back. The villagers were seen unhappy with the police deployment around the house. They accused the police of not allowing the relatives of Sidhu to enter the house.
