Shiromani Akali Dal on Monday came down hard on Navjot Singh Sidhu, saying he practised politics of opportunism and bargained for a better deal. They said people will reject those who give up on their principles.

A sharply critical Prakash Singh Badal said Sidhu "ditched" the very party which gave him respect.

The person who has left his mother party (BJP), one which gave him respect, handheld him... what can be worse than this, he ditched the very party. Till the end, he kept bargaining... What can I say about such persons. People do not respect such individuals. They respect only those who stand by principles and reject those who bargain and give up on their principles.
Prakash Singh Badal, Chief Minister, Punjab

Union Minister and SAD's Bathinda MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal said Sidhu bargained with BJP, AAP and Congress for a "better deal".

He is least concerned about people and only wants to serve his selfish interests. Such people enter politics for this purpose only.

SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal had yesterday called Sidhu an "over-rated comedian".
