New Delhi:Former minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, who wasn’t part of the inaugural jatha that will travel to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, Kartarpur, has been invited for the opening ceremony of the corridor on Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s orders.“Senator Faisal Javed Khan had a telephonic conversation with Navjot Singh Sidhu on the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan and invited him to Pakistan on 9 November,” the news agency said on Wednesday.

Navjot Sidhu had pushed for the corridor to the Pakistan prime minister when he travelled to Pakistan to attend the Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony in 2018. When he returned, Sidhu announced that he had got an assurance that Pakistan would get the corridor ready well in time for Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary celebrations.During his controversial Pakistan visit in January, Sidhu had said that he brought up the issue of opening of the Kartarpur Corridor with Pakistani authorities and his “friend” Imran Khan.
