Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday ridiculed the criticism that Sidhu faced for his visit to Pakistan in August for the oath-taking ceremony.

"I heard there was a lot of criticism of Sidhu when he went back after my oath-taking ceremony. I don't know why was he criticised. He was just talking about peace & brotherhood. He can come and contest election here in Pakistan's Punjab, he'll win," said Pakistan premier.

"The only issue between us is Kashmir, all it needs is just two capable leadership to resolve this issue. Just imagine the potential we have if our relationships get strong," he added.

"I am telling you that I the PM, our party, other political parties, our army -  we are all on the same one and we want to move ahead with India. We want to have a civilised relationship," said Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. 

Imran Khan said that neither India nor Pakistan would move forward both countries kept blaming each other, scoring points over each other.
