    New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday slammed Congress leader Navjot Sidhu for praising Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan at the Kartarpur corridor inauguration across the international border and allegedly seeking to present Pakistani leadership on a higher pedestal than India's.

    BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra criticised Sidhu's remarks praising Imran Khan and describing him as the king of hearts. Sidhu had said, "Sikandar (Alexander) had won the world with fear and you won the heart all over the world."

    Patra alleged that by making such remarks, Sidhu sought to show Pakistan and Khan on a higher pedestal than India.

    He said Sidhu also reportedly projected himself as a representative of 14 crore Sikhs.

    "He was invited as a chief guest there. He was not part of the official 'jatha' which went from India. Who gave him this right," Patra questioned.

    The media is wrong in giving space to Siddhu''s speeches and comments. Everyone in India knows that it''s the government which paves way for such arrangements. Was Siddhu even a part of the negotiation panel or did he take initiative to complete the infrastructure needed to open the corridor? If Siddhu wields so much power in Pakistan, why doesn''t he get the firing at LOC stopped?

    The Induan medua really needs to improve itself. They will not tell you the whole speech but just the one part which will defane an individual and increase their Trp.
    If you hear his full speech, Sidhu thanked both imran and modi for their clearances of yhe project. Furthermore, if such steos are taken for peace and their will be no wars and as such children of many mothera will not die fighting each other
