Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has clearly said that he had asked Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu to reconsider his decision to go to Pakistan for the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor but had acceded to latter’s request as “he did not believe in stopping anyone from undertaking a personal visit”.

Sidhu has come under attack by the BJP for his tilt towards Pakistan and his repeated praises for Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Speaking to media , the Chief Minister said Sidhu was in Madhya Pradesh when he told him to reconsider his decision. “Sidhu told me he had already committed himself to going. When I informed him of the stand I had taken on the issue, he said it was his personal visit but he would get back to me. But I did not hear from him,” said the Chief Minister, adding that Sidhu sent him a request for Pakistan visit and he approved it.

“I do not stop anyone from going anywhere on a private visit. It (Sidhu’s trip) is not an official visit,” said the Chief Minister.
