Updated:2 months, 4 weeks ago IST

Chandigarh, Aug 19 (ANI): Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh reacted to the controversy surrounding Punjab Minister of Tourism, Cultural Affairs, and Museums Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday. Speaking on Sidhu’s Pakistan visit, he said, “As far as attending the swearing-in ceremony is concerned, he went there in his personal capacity so it has nothing to do with us. About him being seated next to the PoK President, maybe he (Sidhu) didn’t know who he was.” He further said, “But as far as hugging the Pakistan Army Chief is concerned I am not in its favour. It was wrong for him to have shown the affection towards the Pakistan Army Chief.”
