Taking to social media, Chawla posted a photo on Facebook, in which Chawla and Navjot Singh Sidhu is seen posing. The photo is believed to be captured during Sidhu’s visit to Pakistan, where he went to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur corridor.

Reacting to his photo, the ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) reacted sharply and said, “Such malicious tactics on Pakistani soil cannot be ignored,” said Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. The Minister also requested Congress leader to keep distance in such meetings.

BJP legislator in Delhi Manjinder Singh Sirsa posted a series of tweets questioning Sidhu for the frame and asked him whether he cared for India’s sovereignty and Punjab’s peace.

Meanwhile, Sidhu’s meeting with Pro-Khalistani sepratist did not go down well with Twitter users and they tried to troll him. Several users on Twitter even called him anti-national.

Let’s take a look how Twitterati react on Navjot Singh Sidhu’s Pakistan visit:

It is to be noted that Chawla was also present at the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur corridor and was seen shaking hands with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

When asked, a Pakistani official said that Gopal Singh Chawla is a senior leader of Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee (PSGPC), and he was invited to all events involving the Sikh community.

Upon his return from Pakistan when asked, Navjot Singh Sidhu denied knowing Gopal Chawla. Confronting his photo with Pro-Khalistan sepratist, Chawla, he said, “I have been clicked at least five to 10,000 times. I do not know who is Gopal Chawla?”
