“Knowing what’s right and not doing it is the worst cowardice !!” he said in another tweet.
Mr Sidhu criticized the Chief Minister of Punjab after the High Court of Punjab and Haryana quashed an investigative report into the Kotkapura dismissal case in 2015 last month.
The state government had formed a new special investigation team to investigate the Kotkapura shooting incident in 2015.
The lawmaker of Amritsar East had questioned the alleged “deliberate delay” in the establishment of justice and had accused Amarinder Singh of shirking his responsibility in the 2015 sacrilege case.
The Chief Minister of Punjab had called Mr. Sidhu’s explosions “total indiscipline”.
Seven Punjab ministers had called for action against Sidhu for continuously attacking Amarinder Singh.
