Sidhu calls PM Imran his ‘elder brother’ as he arrives in Pakistan to attend Guru Nanak's birth anniversary
LAHORE – Famous Indian cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu arrived in Pakistan via the Kartarpur Corridor to attend the 552nd birth anniversary of the founder of his religion.
The 58-year-old Indian politician was welcomed with garlands and rose petals. Punjab Congress chief while speaking to the media called Prime Minister Imran Khan as his elder brother. “He [Imran Khan] has given me a lot of love”, said Sidhu.
Sidhu earlier today crossed over the border to visit the Gurdwara Sahib after his name was left out of Punjab CM Channi’s entourage visiting the shrine.
