Attari-Wagah Border (Punjab), Aug 19 (ANI): Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday returned from Pakistan after attending swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. On the question of sitting besides President of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) Masood Khan, Sidhu said “If you're invited as a guest of honour somewhere, you sit wherever you are asked to. I was sitting somewhere else but they asked me to sit there.” On his controversial hug to Pakistan Army Chief General Bajwa, he said, “If someone (Pak Army Chief General Bajwa) comes to me and says that we belong to the same culture and we will open Kartarpur border on Guru Nanak Dev's 550th Prakash Parv, what else I could do?”
