Navjot Singh Sidhu: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who walked free on Saturday after spending nearly 10 months in Patiala central jail, in a staunch manner came in support of disqualified Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi. 

While speaking to the media after his release, he slammed the Centre for the developments related to Gandhi and said he would always support the grand old party and the leaders irrespective of the situation.

Calling Rahul a "revolutionary leader", the 59-year-old leader said he will stand with him and his sister Priyanka Singh Vadra.

"Rahul Gandhi is a revolutionary leader. I know that the Centre is doing it deliberately to target him and the other Opposition leaders. But, irrespective of all odds, I stand firmly in support of both Rahul and Priyanka," he said. 

"Whenever a dictatorship came to this country a revolution has also come and this time, the name of that revolution is Rahul Gandhi. He will rattle the government," added the senior Congress leader.   

Sidhu, who walked out of jail wearing a sky blue jacket, also slammed Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann for the "current situation" in the state. Recalling his earlier statements and announcements, Sidhu called him a "puppet CM" and added he has made the state even worse.

Why Sidhu was jailed?

Notably, the former state Congress chief was jailed on May 20 last year after being sentenced to one-year rigorous imprisonment by the Supreme Court over the death of the 65-year-old Gurnam Singh in a road rage case in 1988.

Earlier today, supporters had assembled since morning outside the prison to accord him a grand welcome upon his release and they could be heard chanting 'Navjot Sidhu zindabad'.
             
Several Congress leaders including Amritsar MP Gurjit Aujla, former Punjab Congress chiefs Shamsher Singh Dullo, Mohinder Singh Kaypee and Lal Singh, former MLA Navtej Singh Cheema, other leaders Ashwani Sekhri, Sukhwinder Singh Danny were also waiting for the return of Sidhu.
