Kartarpur: A video of Pakistan PM Imran Khan asking 'Hamaara Sidhu Kahan Hai' (meaning where is our Sidhu) has gone viral. Netizens criticised the Congress leader, asking if he is “Pakistan's Sidhu” now?
Navjot Singh Sidhu, a Sikh leader from Congress was invited for the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor. A delegation of 500 pilgrims, along with Sidhu, was to cross the Indian border to visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib shrine in Pakistan after the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan too had arrived at the inauguration ceremony in the shuttle service being used by pilgrims at Kartarpur and asked, “Where is our Sidhu?”
"Achcha hamaara woh Sidhu kidhar hai? Main keh raha hoon hamaara Sidhu."
(Where is our Sidhu? I am telling you he is our Sidhu).

A delegation of Sikh leaders led by former prime minister Manmohan Singh along with Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh arrived in Pakistan. Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, too, was one of the chief guests at the opening ceremony in Pakistan and was invited by Imran Khan.
Upon reaching Pakistan, in a speech, Sidhu was seen speaking highly of Imran Khan. "It is the first time since partition that the Indian and Pakistani boundaries have been dismantled. No one can deny my friend Imran Khan's contribution. I thank Modi ji also for it," Sidhu said.
Both Sidhu and Imran Khan are former cricket players of India and Pakistan respectively.
However, their camaraderie did not go well with the Indian social media audience, who slammed Sidhu for praising Imran Khan.
Imran Khan's statement, "He is our Sidhu," added more heat to the flame and the Congress leader was touted as Pakistan's Sidhu on social media.
