Rahul didn’t ask me to go, I went on Imran Khan’s personal invite

Sidhu’s visit to Pakistan for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor had recieved criticism over his praise of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and a photo taken with a Khalistani leader.

Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu clarified that he did not attend the Kartarpur Corridor ceremony on the instruction of Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

“The whole world knows I went on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s personal invite,” Sidhu tweeted late Friday night.

Sidhu’s visit to Pakistan for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor had recieved criticism over his praise of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and a photo taken with a Khalistani leader.

On Friday, to a query at a news conference, Sidhu had said, “My captain is Rahul Gandhi. He sent me everywhere.”

He was asked why he ignored the advice of his captain to visit Pakistan.

“Which captain you are talking about. Oh.. Captain Amarinder Singh. He is Army Captain. My captain is Rahul Gandhi. Captain’s captain is also Rahul Gandhi,” he said.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had declined Pakistan’s invitation to attend the ceremony, citing Islamabad’s continued support to terrorism in India. He was also reportedly unhappy over Sidhu’s visit.

Sidhu, however, said that Amarinder Singh is like his father. “He is the chief minister. He is our boss, but this is not the first time I had gone without informing. The last time when I went there (Pakistan) I had said that I will come again for people,” said Sidhu, who returned from Pakistan on Thursday.
