Punjabi singer and Congress leader Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, alias Sidhu Moosewala, was shot dead near Mansa on Sunday. According to reports, he was shot at least 10 times near a temple in the town of Jhawahar and pronounced dead at the Mansa civilian hospital. A day earlier, the state AAP government had removed security from the entire village, including Moosewala. Let us tell you that Moosewala had joined Congress just before the election.
According to the information received, this incident took place in Mansa, where Musewala and his associates were shot at by unknown assailants. After the incident, Sidhu Musewala was admitted to Mansa hospital, where he died. Three other people were also injured in the incident and have been admitted to hospital.
Sidhu Musewala had contested the Mansa assembly elections on a Congress ticket. Moosewala was defeated by AAP’s Dr. Vijay Singla by a margin of 63,323 votes. Musewala, a resident of Musa, a town in Mansa district, joined the Congress with much fanfare in November last year.
After being given a ballot by Congress from the Mansa assembly constituency, then-Mansa MLA Nazar Singh Manshahia rebelled against the party, saying he would oppose the controversial singer’s candidacy. Actually, Moosewala had been in controversies many times due to his songs and other activities of his.
