Navjot Singh Sidhu

Nov 20: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Amit Malviya shared a video of Navjot Singh Sidhu on Saturday, in which the Congress leader can be seen hugging an official of Kartarpur and calling Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan his “bada bhai” (elder brother).

While tweeting the video, Amit Malviya took a dig at the Congress and said, “Rahul Gandhi’s favourite Navjot Singh Sidhu calls Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan his “bada bhai”. Last time he had hugged Gen Bajwa, Pakistan Army’s Chief, heaped praises.”

Is it any surprise that the Gandhi siblings chose a Pakistan loving Sidhu over veteran Amarinder Singh?” Amil Malviya said.

In the video posted by Amit Malviya, Navjot Singh, who visited Kartarpur Gurdwara on Saturday, can be seen meeting a Kartarpur official.

The official can be heard greeting Navjot Singh Sidhu “on behalf of the prime minister“. He said, “…we have been waiting for this day for so long.”

Navjot Singh was then greeted with garlands and rose petals.

Amit Malviya also mentioned in his tweet the time when Navjot Singh had hugged Pakistan Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

In 2018, Navjot Singh found himself embroiled in a controversy when he hugged General Bajwa during his visit to Pakistan for Imran Khan’s oath-taking ceremony. He was then criticised by former Punjab Prime Minister Amarinder Singh for his ‘hugplomacy‘.
