Chandigarh: Days ahead of the Punjab Assembly elections, a woman, Suman Toor, who says she is Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu’s sister described her brother, Sidhu as a ‘cruel person’ and alleged that he had deserted their old mother after their father’s death.

Toor, who is based in the United States alleged, “Sidhu abandoned our old mother after the death of our father in 1986 and she later died as a destitute woman at Delhi railway station in 1989.”

According to her, Navjot Singh Sidhu ended “everything for the sake of money”. She also said that in a news article earlier Sidhu had lied about their parents having been separated, when he was two years old.


‘When one becomes big and famous, such relatives surface’

Although there has been no reaction from Navjot Singh Sidhu over the allegations, his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu told media persons in Amritsar Friday that he was not in touch with the family of his estranged mother.

“When Navjot’s mother got married to his father, it was her second marriage. She had two daughters from her first husband. When Navjot was 7-8 years old she left him and his father and went away taking her two daughters from her first marriage along. Since then Navjot did not have much contact with his mother or her daughters. In any case, how do you expect a boy whose mother left him at the age of 7-8 to continue to have a close relationship with her,” she said.
“Now suddenly after all these years, she is saying all these things. Who keeps in touch with relatives of divorced couples? So we have nothing to say about whatever she is saying. When one becomes big and famous, such relatives surface,” Sidhu’s wife said.
“It seems she has been motivated to say all this at this stage,” she added.
