It’s nothing short of miracle: Sidhu

It’s nothing short of miracle: Sidhu

Kartarpur (Pak), November 9

After lying low since his resignation as a Cabinet minister in July, Navjot Singh Sidhu was the cynosure of all eyes as he crossed over to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib through the Kartarpur corridor along with other devotees today.

Absent at the official function on the Indian side at Dera Baba Nanak, he was the centre of attraction on other side of the border.

Not only did he share the main stage inside the gurdwara with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Gurdaspur MP Sunny Deol, he was literally mobbed by devotees, who were a part of the first jatha that went through the corridor and those who had crossed through Attari to be a part of the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak.

Imran Khan credited Sidhu for the Kartarpur corridor. Earlier, as soon as Sidhu reached the Integrated Checkpost at Dera Baba Nanak before passing through the corridor, party MLAs, cutting across party lines, congratulated Sidhu on the opening of the corridor.

During his address at the inaugural ceremony, Sidhu said the completion of the corridor within 10 months was nothing short of a miracle. He thanked Pakistan PM Imran Khan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for realising the dream of the Sikh community.

“I am thanking Modi ji also, it doesn’t matter if we have political differences. I am sending a Munnabhai MBBS-style hug to you Modi sahab for this,” said Sidhu. Taking a swipe at those who had criticised him for hugging Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa during Khan’s swearing-in ceremony last August, he said the hug has worked. He called for opening up the India-Pakistan border for trade, saying “Yeh dil maange more (This heart wants more).”
