Deep Sidhu’s death in a road accident would have far reaching consequences on Punjab politics and youth, it would not die of its own death soon.

The vested interest people from all parties may exploit it for their personal gains.For some he is a martyr and for the others he could be a traitor as was labelled in Kisan protests.The huge gathering at his funeral and Bhog speaks about his popularity in any way and his speeches and interviews are touching the minds of youth.The effect of it must be seen on the election results declared on March 10.

"The lawyers from two communities, educated in foreign countries, sat on the tables before independence and got their shares,If we had a lawyer like Deep Sidhu sitting on the table, the third country would have been ours,"Simranjeet Singh Mann.

 Faridkot: The allegedly accidental death of Sandeep Singh Sidhu alias Deep Sidhu, an actor, lawyer and poll strategist of Sunny Deol in last parliament elections, who shot to lime light soonest than anyone is expected, would have far reaching consequences in the politics of Punjab and on the blank minds of the youth, which soon attract the emotional script written by other to propagate an agenda.

The people sitting in safe havens and politicians would not let it(Sidhu's death) go without exploitation for their selfish goals.

A large number of people attended the Bhog ceremony of Deep Sidhu after his funeral, who had been allegedly killed on the night of February 15 when his Scorpio hit the stationery 22 truck.

The pro Khalistan people are terming him a martyr and the large number of people at Gurdwara Sahib in Fatehgarh (Diwan Todar Mal Hall)sets a narrative for it.

“During the partition, two people from two nationalities were there who sat on the table, one got away  with India and another group got away with Pakistan. If any intelligent lawyer studied abroad like Deep Sidhu would have been there, the third country would have been ours," said Simranjeet Singh Mann, allegedly addressing the gathering at the Bhog ceremony at the venue. 

Deep Sidhu had come to support SS Mann during these assembly elections and his emotionally charged speeches, might have turned the scale towards Mann, known  as a hardcore leader.Masn has won as an MP in 1999 while in jail and headed SAD Amritsar, which was marginalized with the passge of time due to its alleged stance of separist state.

Sidhu’s reasoning and long drawn speeches with historical facts and some interviews answered with a lot of patience and reasoning have touched the minds of the youth.

Mann, during his speech, also raised a question on his death in the alleged accident claiming that the truck was stopped all of the sudden without any animal, human or other obstacle coming in front of that.But this is a matter of investigation and Punjab Tribune does not express any independent view.

Apart from the radicals, the right wing sections may propagate the speeches of hardcore leaders including Sidhu, slogans of the gatherings at the funeral and Bhog of Deep Sidhu as a threat perception to the biorder state which had been in turmoil from 1978 to 1993, during which Punjab lost the thousands of innconet lives.

In case of a fractured mandate in the assembly polls in Punjab, the Deep Sidhu factor would be more activated. As some of the parties would seek governor’s rule propagating the threat perception of rising anti nationalism in Punjab and if Punjab goes in repolling, which has little chances,the anti national threat perception may affect the large number of voters which could tilt the political scale.

Even during the polls, Kejriwal has been alleged to be promoting pro Khalistani elements and a video by its former leader, Kumar Vishwas had been doing rounds and was widely circulated on social media.

Even former CM Punjab, Captain Amrinder Singh has been continuously raising the issue of rise of terroism in Punjab being a border state.

Though Punjab has been very peaceful during all the years after nineties and there is no communal divide or any riots so far in the history, yet the vested interests may not let go Sidhu’s death as a chance of baking their political bread.

However, the Haryana and union government ensure that the accident case is so investigated that it does not leave any suspicion behind it.

The speeches here referred to the youtube and interviews to the web channels.Punjab Tribune has claimed no right of its own on them except for the views of reporter. They are available on Youtube and social media.
