At a press conference in Hyderabad, the cricketer-turned-politician had said, "My captain is Congress president Rahul Gandhi. He sent me everywhere (Kartarpur corridor groundbreaking event). Rahul is also the captain of our captain (Punjab Chief Minister)."
Livid over Sidhu's remarks, Punjab Minister TR Bajwa asserted that if Sidhu did not recognise Amarinder as his 'captain,' then he should resign from his post.
Another Punjab Minister, Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria, had also slammed his Cabinet colleague and said that Sidhu should put down his papers if he disapproves of Amarinder as the state's chief minister.
The cricketer-turned-politician had visited Pakistan to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of Kartarpur Sahib Corridor on November 28. His presence and remarks at the event had created furore back home as he not only mentioned the Rafale deal controversy in his speech but also heaped praises on Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
