#SidhuQuitPolitics trends on social media
May 26, 2019
Cricketer turned Congress leader Navjyot Singh Sidhu has always sparked controversies with his statements. Before election results were out, Sidhu had challenged that he would quit politics if Congress leader Rahul Gandhi loses at Amethi to his opponent and BJP leader Smrithi Irani. Amethi had been a threshold of the Gandhi's for many years now. Since Gandhi was defeated by Irani, social media users are now challenging Sidhu to stick to his word and quit politics at the earliest. The hashtag #SidhuQuitPolitics is now trending on social media.

Sidhu had challenged that he would quit politics upon Rahul's win last April during election campaigns. His speeches have landed him in trouble many times. Sidhu, who is also close to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, has openly declared his support for Khan during public speeches due to which he has faced criticism. Post the Balakot strike, Sidhu said that he does not have enmity towards Pakistan because his friend is the Prime Minister of the country.
We will have to wait and see if Sidhu is going to stick on to his challenge.
