about the video

Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday returned to India after completing his visit to Pakistan. Speaking on Gopal Chawla, Sidhu said that he did not know who is Gopal Singh Chawla. Chawla had put out the picture on Facebook with a caption, “with sedu pa g” (With my brother) on Wednesday evening. Just hours earlier, Chawla’s presence at the Kartarpur event and a warm handshake with Pakistan’s army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa had forced Pakistan Army to clarify that the handshake was basic courtesy extended to Chawla. The pro-Khalistan leader’s latest addition to his Facebook album provoked a sharp response on this side of the border. Sidhu’s photograph went viral on social media with people calling him out. Soon, her bitter rival in the Akali Dal and union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal also joined them.
