Taking a swipe at Congress leader and Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu over the praise and attention he received in Pakistan, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said that he seems to be getting more love and respect in Pakistan than in India. Her statement came after Pakistan PM Imran Khan heaped praise for the cricketer-turned-politician during the Kartarpur corridor opening ceremony on Wednesday. She along with her cabinet colleague Hardeep Singh Puri represented the Indian government at the event. Sidhu was present at the event in personal capacity.

“He (Sidhu) seems to have more of love and respect in Pakistan than what I noticed over here. He has some good relationships over there,” she told ANI while returning back to India.

Puri also commented on Imran Khan’s statement on Sidhu. “”He can come and contest election here in Pakistan’s Punjab, he’ll win’: He invited him (Sidhu) to contest election in Pakistan. I didn’t ask him (Sidhu) what was his reaction, if he is shifting his constituency,” he said.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Pakistan PM said, “I heard there was a lot of criticism of Sidhu when he went back after my oath-taking ceremony. I don’t know why was he criticised. He was just talking about peace and brotherhood. He can come and contest election here in Pakistan’s Punjab, he will win.”

Sidhu had also landed in bid of soup yesterday after he was photographed with Khalistani terrorist Gopal Chawla posted a photo of him with Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on his Facebook page. On Wednesday, Chawla was also see with Pakistan Army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa at the event.
