Former BJP and current Congress minister in Punjab Government, Navjot Singh Sidhu released a statement on Prime Minister Narendra Singh Modi. According to ANI, Sidhu said,“Is the PM jealous that he was not called for Imran Khan's oath ceremony? Is he jealous that he went to Pakistan uninvited? I'll not prove my patriotism to people whose name came up in Godhra".

The Congressman, in the month of August, attended Pakistan's current PM Imran Khan's oath ceremony for which he mustered immense criticism from opposition and people on social media.

However, proclaiming himself as an advocate of peace for both nations Sidhu claimed that he is here as an “Ambassador of goodwill” and wants to boast friendly terms between both neighbors by following gestures like these.

"These moments of democratic change in Pakistan are very important. I feel lucky that Imran Khan, being a friend, invited me. It is an honor for me. I am going to Pakistan as a goodwill ambassador. I am going there with the hope that relations between our two nations will improve," former Indian cricketer told media.

But on the contrary, India fumes on Twitter while expressing their rage and fret over cricketer turned politician for attending the ceremony. Moreover, Twitteratis questioned his credibility while blowing out at him for exchanging pleasantries with General Bajwa.
