Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Sidhu was stopped by Delhi Police on Wednesday as he was about to enter the National Capital to participate in ‘relay dharna’ led by Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh at Jantar Mantar to highlight the issues of the farmers and seek immediate restoration of goods trains.
After heated arguments at the Singhu border, Sidhu and his cavalcade were allowed to enter Delhi. He was accompanying Congress legislator Amrinder Singh Raja Warring.
“The Central government is robbing rights of our farmers…We have empathy not sympathy with them,” he added.
The Chief Minister has announced that he will lead a relay ‘dharna’ of Congress MLAs at the Rajghat on Wednesday to highlight the state’s “power crisis and critical essential supplies” situation amid the Centre’s alleged adamant refusal to allow movement of goods trains due to farmers’ agitation.
