The Delhi unit of the BJP now wants the sponsors of the Kapil Sharma Show to withdraw as a mark of support to the martyred soldiers in Pulwama.
New Delhi: Navjot Singh Sidhu being asked to leave the show hosted by Kapil Sharma is nothing new. Now, the BJP is upping the ante against the sponsors of the show. BJP spokesperson from the Delhi unit has tweeted his warning to the sponsors.
Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga tweeted:
If @KapilSharmaK9 don't remove Sidhu from show, we request sponsors @swiggy_in @SwiggyCares @Syska_LED @RedmiIndia to withdrawn sponsorship. If Sponsors will not listen next campaign will be against sponsors#BoycottKapilSharma— Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga (@TajinderBagga) February 19, 2019
Earlier, during a media interaction, Punjab Cabinet minister Sidhu had spoken about the Pulwama attack, saying, “Nations cannot be held responsible for the dastardly acts of terrorists. The terrorists do not have deen, mazhab (sect and religion). There are good, the bad and the ugly. Every institution has them. Every nation has them. The ugly need to be punished. But individuals cannot be blamed for the dastardly act.”
Speaking to MyNation, Bagga said, "The heat will increase in the next 24 hours."
While his comments were met with harsh criticism, social media was flooded with posts demanding the former cricketer’s exit from the popular show.
On February 14, 40 CRPF jawans were martyred after a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosives-laden SUV into a bus carrying CRPF personnel on Srinagar-Jammu highway.
Sony TV has taken a stand over such controversies. Previously when Anu Malik was named in the “MeToo” campaign, he was sacked overnight as a judge from Indian Idol 10.
