Chandigarh: Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said that he has accepted the invitation extended by Imran Khan for attending his swearing-in ceremony as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
"It is (a) great honour, I accept the invitation. Men of genius are admired, men of power are feared, but men of character are trusted. Khan Sahab is a man of character. He can be trusted. Sportsmen build bridges, break barriers, unite people," Sidhu said in a statement issued here.
Addressing the media on Thursday, Sidhu said, “It’s a huge honour for me. It’s a personal invitation (for Imran Khan's swearing in) from him and not a political one.”
Praising Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and to be prime minister on Pakistan, Sidhu said: “He (Imran Khan) has risen from scratch in politics. I see him as a ray of hope.”
Sidhu was among other personalities who had reportedly been invited by Khan to attend his oath-taking ceremony. Imran Khan's party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has emerged as the single-largest party in the National Assembly after last week's general election in the neighbouring country.
Imran Khan had said he would take oath as Pakistan's prime minister on August 11.
