Election Commission bans Navjot Singh Sidhu from campaigning

New Delhi: Election Commission on Monday censured Congress leader and Punjab’s Tourism Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu from election campaign for 72 hours for violating the model code of conduct.

The ban comes into effect from 10 AM on Tuesday.

Addressing an election rally in Bihar’s Katihar on April 16, the cricketer-turned-politician had dragged controversy when he urged Muslim voters to vote en bloc and defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

With this development, Sidhu joins leaders such as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, BSP chief Mayawati, Union Minister Maneka Gandhi and SP leader Azam Khan who faced similar campaign ban recently.
