BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy on Congress leader Sidhu: He should be arrested and interrogated for visiting Pakistan
The verbal spat between the Congress cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and other oppositions leaders is worsening day-by-day. After Union Cabinet Minister of Shiromani Akali Dal Harsimrat Kaur Badal's recent remark on Sidhu, Bharatiya Janata party Leader Subramaniam Swamy has released a statement on the Congress leader.
Taking a jibe at Sidhu, over the praise and attention he received in Pakistan, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said that he seems to be getting more love and respect in Pakistan than in India. Likewise, Swamy said, “Sidhu should be arrested under the National Security Act and interrogated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for visiting Pakistan and clicking with Khalistani leader Gopal Singh Chawla,” ANI reported.
Swamy came forward with the assertion after Chawla posted a picture on his Facebook page where Sidhu and Chawla are standting together during the Congress leader's visit to Pakistan for the Kartarpur corridor ceremony.
Sidhu however denied any such affiliation with the Khalistani leader. There were probably 5-10,000 pictures taken of and with me there(in Pakistan), I don't know who is Gopal Chawla,” Sidhu said to ANI.

Swamy further said to ANI that Sidhu should go under a an investigation and NIA must ask who all he met in Pakistan, where did he go, where did he stay and with whom. Also, Swamy asked the politician to release a statement that he has no ties with the Khalistani leader Chawla.
Even BJP leader Shahnawaz Husain put Sidhu under the answerable state. He said that Sidhu needs to justify the picture to come out clean before Punjab.
According to PTV, Chawla also met Pakistan Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa during the ceremony.
