Navjot Singh Sidhu’s pro-Pakistan comment didn’t go down well with the people of our country. After the Pulwama attack, the cricketer-turned-politician during a media interaction said, "For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished.” His statement is being severely bashed on social media with Twitterati even demanding that he be thrown out of The Kapil Sharma Show and out of the Punjab government's cabinet. Amidst all these controversies surrounding him, Sidhu recently met martyr CRPF jawan Jaimal Singh's family and took to Twitter to share a few pictures from the meeting.
Although Sidhu made an attempt to control the damage his statements have created, this visit seems to be hurting his image even further. The minister is being miserably trolled on Twitter with users bashing him and questioning his decision to meet the family. While some of the reactions have a tint of humour in them, it looks like the people of the country are in no mood to forgive Sidhu for his statement.
There were reports that Sidhu will be replaced by Archana Puran Singh in The Kapil Sharma Show. Archana Puran Singh has denied the reports of being approached for the show, however, she confirmed to having shot for two episodes of the show where she temporarily replaced Sidhu.
