Congress spokesman Jaiveer Shergill slams Government over awarding Padma Shri to Adnan Sami. Protests have begun over the award of Padma Shri to lyricist and singer Adnan Sami. Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has already protested against awarding Padma Shri to Adnan. But now the Congress has also echoed this. On Sunday, Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said that the glamor of the BJP government has become the new standard for this prestigious award.

Jaiveer Shergill tweeted and wrote that Mohammed Sanaullah, who joined the Kargil war, was declared an ‘intruder’ while Sami is being given the Padma Samman whose father was in the Pakistani Air Force shelling against India?

Jaiveer Shergill has also shared a video, in which he said, ‘Mohammed Sanaullah, son of this earth’s brave soldier and son of Bharat Mata, who fought Kargil against Pakistan, was declared an intruder by the NRC. On the other hand, Adnan Sami, whose father was an officer of the Pakistani Air Force who fired on India, conferred him with the Padma Shri award.

Shergill has also asked three questions along with it. He said, ‘three questions arise in this – first, why the Indian soldier has to prove his citizenship, and on the other hand, why the Pakistani Air Force officer is being awarded by the Padma Shri award? Second, is it important for Padmashri to contribute to the society or to praise the government? Is there a new criterion for Padmashri, that if you will be obedient to the government, you will get Padmashree’?
