Punjab cabinet minister and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu accepted the invite of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to attend Prime Minister-elect Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony on August 11.
Sidhu’s statement came shortly after PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhary while speaking to reporters in Islamabad, said former Indian cricketers, including Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, and Navjot Singh Sidhu as well as Bollywood actor Aamir Khan have been invited to the oath-taking ceremony.
Sidhu is the first among the notables who have confirmed his acceptance to the invite. He said, “It is a great honor for him and will show his attendance at the event”.
PTI leader Imran Khan is set to become Pakistan’s next prime minister after his party emerged as the strongest in the recently held elections in Pakistan.
