1988 Road rage case: Navjot Singh Sidhu to be released today on account of his good behaviour

Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has been awarded one year of rigorous imprisonment in the 1988 road rage case in which Patiala resident Gurnam Singh had died. The punishment has been awarded to Sidhu under Section 323 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Reports said the Sidhu will be taken into custody by Punjab Police as per the order. The order was delivered by a bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul. Justice SK Kaul dismissed the petition that was filed under Section 304 of the IPC. Earlier, the Apex Court had reserved the order on an application seeking to enlarge the scope of notice in the 32-year-old road rage case against Sidhu.

Soon after Sidhu was sentenced to one year in jail, he tweeted that he will submit to the majesty by law.

Have a look at Navjot Singh Sidhu’s tweet:

A review petition was filed by the victim’s family that sought punishment for an offence of a more serious category than causing hurt leading to enhancement of punishment. Sidhu had urged the SC not to punish him with a jail term.

In March, the Congress leader had told the SC that the plea seeking enlargement of the scope of notice in the matter relating to the sentence awarded to him in the case is an abuse of process.

Navjot Singh Sidhu was held guilty in May 2018 of the offence of voluntarily causing hurt to a 65-year-old man in the case and was let off with a fine of Rs 1,000.

According to the prosecution, Sidhu and Sandhu were in a Gypsy parked in the middle of a road near the Sheranwala Gate Crossing in Patiala on December 27, 1988, when the victim and two others were on their way to the bank to withdraw money.

PM Modi says hat-trick victories guarantee 2024 hat-trick

Narendra Modi claimed that dissatisfaction among youth over paper leak and recruitment scam led to ouster the governments of Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan.

After the BJP’s sweeping victories in the assembly elections of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the victory is of a self-reliant India, honest, transparency and good governance. Hailing that this hat-trick of victories has given guarantee for a 2024 hat-trick, he said that voters do not believe talk in thin air, false promises and rather support a concrete roadmap for development and good governance.

Referring to the Congress demand for a caste census, PM Modi said that some people tried to divide the country on caste lines during the elections. He added that for him there are only four castes namely women, youth, farmers and poor whose empowerment can strengthen the country. He stated that the people from all castes, regions, communities voted for the party and that every poor person feels that he has won.

Addressing party workers at the BJP headquarters, the Prime Minister expressed gratitude to the women, mentioning that women believe only BJP can provide guarantee for their security, safety and dignity. He remarked that women empowerment is an important pillar of BJP’s model of development. He also assured the women that all the promises will be fulfilled. 

Referring to Congress’s defeat, Narendra Modi claimed that dissatisfaction among youth over paper leak and recruitment scam led to the ouster of the governments of Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. He mentioned that be it in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh or Telangana, the incumbent party was thrown out of power because it was against the youth and had scams in its tenure. Especially thanking the people of Telangana, he said that the BJP will leave no stone unturned in working for them.

Modi underlined that the BJP government not only makes policies but also ensures that they reach the rightful beneficiaries. He further stated that these victories are a clear warning to those who are not ashamed to stand with the corrupt and try to cover up their deeds.

Slamming the opposition alliance INDIA, the Prime Minister asserted that coming together can yield good photo opportunities and media headlines but cannot win people’s trust. He also requested Congress and its allies to not indulge in politics that empower the anti-national forces.

Welfarism beats the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan

Shivraj Singh Chouhan launched several schemes for women including cash incentives and even delivered two tranches of Rs 3000 each on Rakhi and Karwa Chauth to married women.

In one giant swoop, the BJP has cornered entire Western and Central India with its latest victories in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. The party now controls the entire cow belt giving it the right platform for 2024.

While Rajasthan was iffy for the Congress, it was overconfident in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, where a combination of weak and divided local leadership and women voters eventually brought it down. It has lost Madhya Pradesh 65-164 and Chhattisgarh 34-56.

ELECTION 2023 COVERAGE: Madhya Pradesh | Rajasthan | Chhattisgarh | Telangana

In many ways, these were elections driven by labarthis (beneficiaries) and the BJP proved itself with better planning, strategy and implementation. In Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan launched several schemes for women including cash incentives and even delivered two tranches of Rs 3000 each on Rakhi and Karwa Chauth to married women. 

In Chhattisgarh, where the BJP was in the opposition, it adopted a better strategy by promising Rs 12,000 per annum to married women and later getting them to sign some forms which made the signatories believe they would receive the promised benefit later. BJP workers got more than 30 lakh forms signed and in a state with more women voters than men, it surely means something.

In MP, an overconfident Congress made a mess of ticket distribution. Digvijaya Singh grabbed the largest share and brought in all his 90s cabinet. Eventually, they all lost. It is perhaps time to get rid of Digvijaya and Kamal Nath altogether just like Uma Bharti was ex-communicated from the state by the BJP in 2007 after Shivraj became CM. It paved way for the new. 

The loss in both states will hurt the party not only in the three states but its ramifications will be felt at national level with INDIA and other alliances.
