The Geographical, Historical and Social Facts Sidhu Given Not Be Taken As Controversial - By: Balbir Singh Sooch-Sikh Vichar Manch

1. Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said an unnecessary controversy was being created and he never said anything objectionable related to issue to open the corridor from Dera Baba Nanak to Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan to facilitate pilgrims who want to pay obeisance on the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.



2. “To drive home the point, Sidhu said, "When I go to Tamil Nadu, I don't understand the language. There are just one or two words I understand. Not that I don't like the food, but I cannot have it for a long time. The culture is totally different. But if I go to Pakistan, they speak Punjabi and English and I can relate to them more.” TOI



3. “Can relate more with Pakistanis than with people in Tamil Nadu: Navjot Singh Sidhu”: TOI; “Speaking at the first edition of Kasauli Literature Festival, the actor-turned-politician said, "When I go to South India, I can hardly understand a word, except for two-three like vadakkam. I am okay with the food there. I can have dishes like idli but then I cannot have the South Indian cuisine for long. That culture is totally different. But if I go to Pakistan, they speak Punjabi and English and I can relate to them more."



4. Reacting on the hug row, Sidhu said that if Pakistan actually opens the corridor for Indian sikhs, "leave aside jhappi (hug), I would give him a pappi (kiss)". "Punjab is no longer the state it used to be. It was made up of five rivers, but two went to Pakistan after partition," he further said”



5. Reacting on the hug row, Navjot Singh Sidhu said that if Pakistan actually opens the Kartarpur corridor for Indian Sikhs, leave aside the hug, he would give them a kiss. News 18; "My jaffi (hug) has no conspiracy. It was no Rafale deal. I did a jaffi with you, is that a controversy? I mean if somebody tells me that they are ready to open Baba Nanak's langa ( barrier), Kartarpur da langa (Kartarpur's corridor) and you know they reiterated, just said it 400 times that they are ready to open, I will not only hug again but that too with a kiss," Navjot Singh Sidhu said.



“HIGHLIGHTS:



(i) Navjot Singh Sidhu Says this was the only way he knows to express his affection



(ii) Proximity to Pakistan's Punjab makes travel to Pakistan easier than to Tamil Nadu: Sidhu





(iii) Sidhu made the comments at the Khushwant Singh Literary Festival in Kasauli: Manjeet Sehgal; Chandigarh; UPDATED: October 14, 2018 03:29 IST



(iv) Navjot Singh Sidhu made the comments at the Khushwant Singh Literary Festival in Kasauli: “Will not only hug but kiss General Bajwa if Kartarpur Corridor is opened: Navjot Singh Sidhu.” India Today



6. Who are out to create controversy politically and selfishly with ulterior motives about ‘The Geographical, Historical and Social Facts Sidhu Has Given Not Be Taken As Controversial’, they are first and great enemy of our Indians then of Pakistanis and are obviously against peace and prosperity between India and Pakistan. Balbir Singh Sooch-Sikh Vichar Manch tried to keenly observe the entire matter.
