Saturday 15th December 2018 06:54 EST

CHANDIGARH: Punjab Local Government Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu called on Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, the first meeting between both the leaders following a controversy surrounding Sidhu's acceptance over Pakistan’s invite for ceremony of Kartarpur corridor, while Singh declined. During his half-an-hour meeting with the CM, Sidhu reportedly cleared the air on the “my captain” remark. The Captain too dismissed it saying it was “blown out of proportion by the media”. Sidhu, who had been recuperating from injury to his vocal cords due to hectic poll campaigning, enquired about Singh's health and wished him a speedy recovery. He also gifted the CM a stuffed partridge brought from Pakistan. Both leaders also discussed results of recently concluded state elections and party's prospects in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. The Kartarpur corridor, which Amarinder has called a “conspiracy of the Pak army” did not figure in the talks.
