New Delhi, Sep 04 (ANI): Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday objected to Tourism and Cultural Affairs Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu hugging Pakistan Army Chief as he said that the Army Chief is the one who is responsible for the killing of our jawaans. He said, “It’s not embarrassing. I think he did not understand implications. Going for swearing in is fine, as he is Imran's friend. I also don't blame him for sitting next to the PoK fellow as he would not know who PoK leader is, even I don't know. I had objected to him hugging Pakistan Army Chief, more than 300 of our Army men are killed and wounded every year by Pakistani troops, and order comes from Army Chief and not jawans or any young officer.” Earlier, Sidhu sparked a controversy wherein he hugged Pakistan Army Chief Lt General Bajwa during the swearing-in ceremony of Imran Khan as Pakistan’s Prime Minister.
