A new controversary have been arises over the qualification of Former MP and Former Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Navjot Singh Sidhu, who has remained member of 14th and 15th Lok Sabha from Amritsar Parliamentary Constituency, from where he got elected as M.P. on BJP ticket thrice in a row including in a bye-election conducted in the year 2007, during the period between May, 2004 to May, 2014 followed by remaining nominated member of Council of States (Rajya Sabha) from April, 2016 to July, 2016, on which he was nominated by then President of India, Pranab Mukherjee during Modi Sarkaar-1, however he resigned within three months and thereafter remained member of previous 15th Punjab Legislative Assembly from Amritsar East seat during the period between March, 2017 to March, 2022, winning as Congress candidate, is indeed a Law Graduate ?

Advocate at Punjab and Haryana High Court, Hemant Kumar, told that when the other day, he checked the official website of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, under the Former Members Page of both Houses, the Bio-Data of Sidhu as currently uploaded therein currently mention him as B.A.LL.B.

Sidhu, who has recently been sentenced to one year rigorous imprisonment by Supreme Court of India in over three-decades old road rage incident, lost the Assembly General Election from Amritsar East Seat earlier this year contesting as a Congress candidate for the second time in a row.

Meanwhile, an Advocate at Punjab and Haryana High Court, Hemant Kumar, told that when the other day, he checked the official website of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, under the Former Members Page of both Houses, the Bio-Data of Sidhu as currently uploaded therein currently mention him as B.A.LL.B.

However, when the Advocate checked the Poll Affidavit as filed by Sidhu along with his nomination form from Amritsar East Assembly Constituency during 16th Punjab Assembly General Elections conducted earlier this year, which is currently uploaded on official website of Chief Electoral Officer, Punjab, he found that Sidhu mentioned his educational qualification therein as only B.A. from Punjabi University, Patiala in the year 1986.

Further, when Hemant further checked Sidhu's previous Election Affidavit which he filed in Jan, 2017 during General Elections to previous 15th Punjab Assembly conducted in Feb, 2017, he however mentioned him B.A./LL.B, Punjabi University, Patiala in 1986.

Meanwhile, the official booklet of then Members of 15th Punjab Vidhan Sabha as published by Punjab Vidhan Sabha Secretariat mention Sidhu's Education Qualification as only B.A.

Going a step further, when Hemant found Sidhu's one more Poll Affidavit which he filed while contesting General Elections to the 15th Lok Sabha during April-May, 2009, in that Affidavit he has mentioned the relevant year as 1984 in which he did B.A. from Govt. Mahindra College, Punjabi University, Patiala.

Amidst all this, one seriously wonders actually when Sidhu did B.A., in the year 1984, as he mentioned in his April, 2009 Lok Sabha Poll Affidavit or in the year 1986, as he showed in Jan, 2022 Assembly Election Affidavit and furthermore, if he is indeed B.A/LL.B. as he mentioned in his Jan, 2017 Assembly Election Affidavit, if he did LL.B. in two years from 1984 to 1986 notwithstanding the fact that LL.B has been three years course since last five decades.
