Sidhu reaches Pakistan High Commission in Delhi to apply for visa



New Delhi, Aug. 13 (TNS): On Monday, former Indian cricketer and Indian Punjab Local Bodies Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu reached the Pakistani High Commission to apply for the visa for his visit on August 18.

The following development comes to light after Sidhu had accepted the invitation from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Islam (PTI) chief Imran Khan to be a part of his oath-taking ceremony in Pakistan. In the video that surfaced on Monday morning, Navjot Sidhu can be seen entering the High Commission in his white SUV. While reporters tried their best to get a reaction by Punjab Minister, they were stopped outside the gate by the security.

Earlier, while talking to media, Sidhu said that Imran Khan called him personally to invite him for his oath-taking ceremony in Pakistan on August 18. The call was later followed by a formal email from PTI leaders.

Earlier, there were reports that the PTI had sent out invitations to all the leaders of SAARC including PM Modi. However, the reports were soon withdrawn after PTI said that they have not yet finalised the invitation list.
