Not only this, BJP leaders are taking a dig at him for the hug Sidhu shared with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, during the ceremony. And now the opposition parties are asking him if he even remembered the sacrifices made by the Indian soldiers at the border.
Punjab BJP chief Shwait Malik opened up on Sidhu’s visit. He mentioned:
“Sidhu’s visit to Pakistan is shameful. On one side, the Pakistan army was involved in attacking our soldiers at the border and on the other side Sidhu was hugging the Army chief. Does it mean he was thanking him for killing our jawans?”
Malik deemed Sidhu as an ‘opportunist’ and also laid accusations on him of playing with the nation’s dignity. He further demanded an apology from Sidhu for his ‘unacceptable act’.
On the other hand, the Shiromani Akali Dal mentioned that Sidhu didn’t maintain the ‘decorum’ and broke it through his Pakistan visit. Let us tell you that Sidhu is a minister in the Cabinet of Amarinder Singh-led Congress government in Punjab.
As per a report, during the swearing-in ceremony, Sidhu was on purpose made to sit adjacent to Masood Khan (who is also the president of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir).
The report also revealed that Sidhu was previously sitting in the back rows with former Pak cricketer Wasim Akram and others. As soon as this news broke out on social media, people have been saying all different kinds of things about Sidhu’s Pakistan visit. Checkout some of the tweets below:

Honestly, I had felt bad when Sidhu left the BJP to join the Congress. But today, after seeing him warmly embracing the man who is responsible for killing our Indian Army jawans, I’m so glad that the BJP let him go!!@sherryontopp #SidhuHugsBajwa

#NavjotSinghSidhu warmly hugs Pakistan Army Chief General #QamarJavedBajwa. It’s going to be a freak show on Indian News Channels tonight. By the night ends, #Sidhu would be declared security risk for #India. Or has it already begun? 😅 #SidhuHugsBajwa pic.twitter.com/6VIp29cRGS

A clown can only be a CLOWN.
Sidhu went to a comedy show like he does in India.
After Prakash Raj has been exposed, the Commie-Liberal cabal has been desperately searching for a new ICON
Don’t call him a “Traitor”and pay unnecessary attention to this JOKER.#SidhuHugsBajwa

Critics of #SidhuHugsBajwa should remember #AtalBihariVaajpayeeHugsParvej and #ModiHugsNawaj . #Sidhu was not invited as a politician but as a cricketer friend of #ImranKhanPrimeMinister . #Government should use old ties of #PakPM to strengthen the relationship of both nations.

Shameful, he’s hugged a man who holds a position that’s responsible, directly and indirectly, of killing many of our soldiers and citizens; shocking that he can justify his action…there’s a graceful way of showing dissent which this fool can’t understand #SidhuHugsBajwaAdvertisement
