Sidhu claimed that things that were made in that time of the country, whether they were from needle to aircraft, those things were made in the country.

Sidhu also praised Sonia for taking the lead of Congress. Said that after the assassination of husband Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia took the right leadership of the Congress. This was the reason that Congress could stay in the center for 10 years (from 2004 to 2014).
After being an attacker on the BJP, he said – whatever was loyal to him, it was considered nationalist, while those who left the party became anti-national for those people. The former cricketer did not stop here. Regarding Rafael Jet Deal, he said, “This issue will defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the general elections.
When asked if the BJP’s Smriti Irani in Amethi would get a tough fight from Rahul?

Earlier, he had to face the action of the Election Commission (EC) regarding the controversial statement. Actually, EC violated Sidhu’s campaign for violation of the Election Code of Conduct for 72 hours.
