Had asked Sidhu to rethink Pak visit: CM
Chandigarh, November 28
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said he had asked Cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu to reconsider his decision to go to Pakistan for the groundbreaking ceremony of the corridor, but acceded to his (Sidhu’s) request for permission to go on a personal visit.
“Sidhu told me that he had already committed himself to going. When I informed him of the stand I had taken on the issue, he said it was his personal visit, but he would get back to me. I did not hear from him,” said the CM, adding that the minister sent him a request for going and he approved it.
“I do not stop anyone from going anywhere on a private visit. It (Sidhu’s trip) is not an official visit,” he said.
