Punjab Minister and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu stirred a controversy on Tuesday after appealing Muslims to unite and vote for the party at a rally in Bihar’s Katihar.

Arguing that Muslims should unite and vote for Congress candidate Tariq Anwar, “There’s a conspiracy going on. I have come to warn you, Muslim brothers. You form 54 per cent of the population… All of you come to work in Punjab. If you face any problem in Punjab, you’ll find Sindhu standing”

“I am here to warn you all. They are dividing you guys. After fielding candidates like Owaisi, they want to divide your votes and win the polls. If you all come together and vote, then the matter will be settled, Modi will be taken care of. It’s time to hit a six and send Modi outside the boundary,” said the cricketer-turned-politician at a rally at Katihar’s Balrampur High School.
