Sidhu Gets More Love And Respect In Pakistan Than In India

NEW DELHI

Union minister and Shiramoni Akali Dal (SAD) leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Wednesday took a dig at Punjab minister and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu as she returned from Pakistan after attending the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor.

At the Attari-Wagah border, the Union minister said that Sidhu seems to have “more love and respect” in Pakistan than he has in India, adding that the cricketer-turned-politician has “some good relationships over there”.

About Sidhu’s friendship with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, the SAD leader said, “Yes I think he (Imran Khan) offered him (Sidhu) to fight election from Pakistan. He seems to have more of love and respect in Pakistan than what I noticed over here. He has some good relationships over there.”

The remark was in connection with Pakistani Prime Minister’s comment on Wednesday that Sidhu would win if he contested elections in the neighbouring country.
