FLY IN THE HONEY TRAP
Asleazy sex scandal played out as Punjab readied itself for the polls on February 4. Shiromani Akal Dal MP Sher Singh Ghubaya was allegedly caught on tape in a compromising position with a woman. The man he holds responsible is his own Deputy CM, Sukhbir Singh Badal. Ghubaya claims Sukhbir’s handiwork is an act of ‘political assassination’. And he made that sensational claim alongside Ravneet Bittu, the Congress nominee challenging Sukhbir in Jalalabad, his home turf. “This [tape] is an affront to the whole Rai Sikh community,” Bittu said, hoping to woo the 30,000 voters who share Ghubaya’s background. Could Ghubaya be actively seeking expulsion from the SAD by challenging Sukhbir so openly? Will the Badals oblige him? Certainly the Congress is waiting in the wings to pick up the pieces.
