Embattled Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, on June 30, suggested that he was a ‘missile’ that is ‘guided and aimed’ at Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal's “corrupt” business ventures.

In a tweet, Sidhu said he was “guided and aimed” to “destroy your (Badal’s) corrupt businesses” and that he won’t stop until the latter’s Sukhvilas Spa Resort in New Chandigarh “is not turned into a public school and public hospital to serve Punjab’s poor.”

“Guided and aimed at you to destroy your corrupt businesses ... Until your Sukh Vilas built on Punjab’s ruins is not turned into a Public School & Public Hospital to serve Punjab’s poor, I won’t relent !! (sic),” Sidhu tweeted.

The Sukhvilas resort is operated by EIH Limited, the flagship company of the Oberoi Group. But the property is reportedly owned by Metro Eco Green Resorts Limited, which is in turn held by a private consortium of investors that include Badal and his wife and former union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
