BJP Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Bagga, who was invited to a debate last night to discuss the Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib Corridor, refused to criticise Sidhu in front of Pakistani guest saying that it is our internal matter and he would not be critical of Sidhu in front of Pakistani guest.

In the above video, during the debate, Bagga could be heard saying he would not like to discuss grievances he has with Sidhu in front of the Pakistani guest. He added that this is an internal matter of our country and that he would speak up and criticise Sidhu, but not in front of a Pakistani guest.

Speaking to OpIndia, Bagga said that he refuses to indulge Pakistan because of the duality it shows on issue of terrorism. “On one side they are saying if India takes one step forward, we will take two steps for peace, on the other side Pakistan hosts the Khalistan Referendum 2020. And this is just one example, Pakistan has been sponsoring terrorism while talking of making peace effort,” said Bagga.

Khalistan Referendum 2020 is a movement by Sikh separatist groups to influence Sikhs to ‘liberate Punjab from India’s occupation’ through a referendum. A convention is planned in Pakistan in November 2019 to influence Sikhs who visit Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara who visit the shrine to commemorate Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary.

Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has come under lot of fire recently for his controversial stand and statements on the relation with Pakistan. His hug with Pakistan Army Chief General Bajwa while sitting next to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir President during Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony had raised quite a few eyebrows. He had recently referred to Imran Khan, who is believed to be a pro-Taliban terrorist sympathiser, as ‘an angel‘. Sidhu was also criticised for posing with Khalistani terrorist Gopal Chawla during the Kartarpur Corridor groundbreaking ceremony.

Sidhu is not the only Congress leader who has shown a softer side to the country which sponsors terrorism on Indian soil. Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had also hailed Pakistan and shamed Indian leaders in Pakistan while praising Jinnah. Earlier he had called for the support of Pakistan to not only remove the current government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi but also to help Congress come to power.
