BJP slams Congress over Navjot Singh Sidhu's 'bada bhai' address to Imran Khan

A purported video of Sidhu being welcomed by a Pakistani official on behalf of Khan has gone viral in which the Congress leader is heard saying Khan was like a "bada bhai" to him and that he loved him a lot.

Navjot Singh Sidhu requested Congress chief Sonia Gandhi to give him a personal audience to present to her the Punjab model with 13-point agenda to be part of the party manifesto for the 2022 assembly election.

Navjot Singh Sidhu requested Congress chief Sonia Gandhi to give him a personal audience to present to her the Punjab model with 13-point agenda to be part of the party manifesto for the 2022 assembly election.

The BJP on Saturday hit out at the Congress after its Punjab unit president Navjot Singh Sidhu reportedly called Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan his "elder brother" during a trip to Kartarpur Sahib, alleging the opposition party sees terror groups like IS and Boko Haram in Hindutva while it finds a "bhai jaan" in Khan.

A purported video of Sidhu being welcomed by a Pakistani official on behalf of Khan has gone viral in which the Congress leader is heard saying Khan was like a "bada bhai" to him and that he loved him a lot.

It is a serious matter of concern for India, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said as the ruling party seized on the issue to target the Congress.

He claimed that there was a larger design at work, and Sidhu’s comments were linked to a number of Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, criticising Hindutva.
