Navjyot Singh Sidhu: I will bow down to the glory of law: Navjyot Singh Sidhu

Chandigarh: Former Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday said he would “bow to the glory of the law” after the Supreme Court sentenced him to one year in jail in the 1988 road rage case. Sidhu was in Patiala to take part in a protest against inflation.

“I will bow to the glory of the law …,” he tweeted.

A bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and SK Kaul on Thursday allowed the appeal filed by the victim’s family on the issue of sentencing Sidhu.

Although the Supreme Court in May 2018 convicted Sidhu of the crime of “voluntarily hitting” a 65-year-old man, it saved him a jail term and imposed a fine of Rs 1,000.

“… We think there was an obvious flaw in the record … So, we have allowed the appeal for reconsideration of the sentence issue. The time bench said.

Earlier in the day, Sidhu rode an elephant in Patiala to register a symbolic protest against the rise in prices of essential commodities.

Talking to reporters, he said that the budget of the poor, farmers, workers and middle class families has been damaged due to the rise in inflation.

“Protests against inflation. Inflation devalues ​​the money of farmers, workers, middle-class families, even though incomes remain the same. Costs of food, housing, transportation and healthcare have risen by more than 50%, (Rs.) Wages have been reduced from Rs 250 to Rs 150 crore.” Millions of people are being pushed into poverty, ”Sidhu said in another tweet.
