Back from trip to neighboring Pakistan, Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu is facing political slams back home.
This is as the Akali Dal asked Navjot Singh Sidhu if “India is his priority”.
This attack came about after a prominent pro-Khalistan separatist leader shared his purported photograph with the Punjab Cabinet minister on social media.
Identified as Gopal Singh Chawla, the general secretary of Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee (PSGPC), shared the photograph on his Facebook page.
Chawla, a known pro-Khalistan voice, was also seen shaking hands with Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa at the ground-breaking ceremony of Kartarpur corridor in Pakistan on Wednesday.
Badal said Sidhu should have known that Pakistan has been involved in pushing drugs into Punjab.
However, Congress leader Raj Kumar Verka slammed the Akali Dal for attacking Sidhu and not taking action against Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee chief Gobind Singh Longowal, whose photograph with Chawla has also appeared on social media.>
