Kartarpur Corridor- Navjot Sidhu hailed as Hero

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, known for his colourful phrases, told Prime Minister Narendra Modi he was sending a “Munnabhai MBBS-style hug” as thanks for establishing the Kartarpur Corridor project and helping Sikhs access the Darbar Sahib. “I am thanking Modiji… it doesn’t matter if we have political differences… doesn’t matter if my life is dedicated to Gandhi family… I am sending a Munnabhai MBBS-style hug to you, Modi saheb, for this,” Mr Sidhu said.

Speaking at an event on the Pakistan-side of the border, the Congress MLA also thanked Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, calling him the “king of hearts” and saying, “Sikandar (Alexander) won the world with fear but you won hearts all over the world.”

“Both sides of Punjab witnessed bloodbath during the partition. You (Mr Khan) and Mr Modi have applied ointment on the wounds of the people (through this initiative),” he said.
