The former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu has accepted Pakistan's invitation on Sunday, November 25 to attend the Kartarpur corridor foundation stone-laying ceremony, while the Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh declined the similar invitation. He did not accept the invitation on the ground of continuous terror attacks in his state and India and killings of Indian soldiers by the Pakistani troops.

The current Vice President of India, Venkaiah Naidu will today (November 26) lay the foundation stone of the corridor from the Indian side, which links Dera Baba Nanak in Punjab's Gurdaspur district with Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan. However, according to Navjot Singh Sidhu, he has accepted the proposal as he believes this initiative would open "the borders of hearts and the mind."

The senior Punjab Minister, Navjot Sidhu accepted the invitation by writing a letter to Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will also be present at this important event.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal, the wife of former Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, Sukhbir Singh Badal, who called Sidhu 'qaum ka gaddar,' is now also going to Pakistan. On this Punjab Congress leader, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa has questioned "with what face she is going to the neighboring country."
