Pakistan captain Imran Khan won the national elections in Pakistan last week and now he has invited former Indian cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu for his oath-taking ceremony.
Imran Khan's party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Wednesday said it will send formal invitations to former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Navjot Singh Sidhu and Bollywood actor Aamir Khan for the ceremony.
Responding to Khan's invite, Sidhu said it is a great honour for him to get the invitation. "It is a great honour and I accept the invitation," he told news agency ANI.
Sidhu described Imran Khan as a "man of character". "Men of genius are admired, men of power are feared but men of character are trusted. Khan sahab [Imran Khan] is a man of character. He can be trusted," Sidhu told ANI.
Besides Sidhu, Imran Khan is also interested in inviting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the ceremony.
