External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who, when asked about the controversy, said she would not be able to comment on the issue as it was a major tussle between "the three captains in the Congress party." For the unversed, the first captain Swaraj refers to here is the Punjab chief minister himself, known as Captain Amarinder Singh. The second is Sidhu, who chose to visit Pakistan despite Singh's opposition. The third is Rahul Gandhi, who Sidhu referred to as the captain in one of the his earlier statements.
Navjot Singh Sidhu also, while addressing a rally in Rajasthan's Kota, said, "Congress gave us four Gandhis - Rajiv Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. The BJP gave us three Modis - Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi and the one sitting in Ambani's lap - Narendra Modi."
Nirav Modi is an absconding diamantaire and Lalit Modi an absconding businessman and Prime Minister Narenda Modi has been accused by the Opposition of favouring Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence in the Rafale deal.
