Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that former cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu is so popular in Pakistan that he can contest and win an election here.

Imran Khan was speaking on the occasion of foundation stone-laying ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor.

"Sidhu can come and contest election here in Pakistan's Punjab, he'll win. I hope we don't have to wait for Sidhu to become Indian PM for everlasting friendship b/w our nations," said Imran Khan.

Imran himself performed the groundbreaking of the corridor connecting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur area of Narowal district with Dera Baba Nanak in India's Gurdaspur District.

"The happiness I saw today was like of those Muslims who are standing 4 km away from Medina on another side of the border but are unable to visit it, but when they get chance to visit it, the happiness they get is the happiness they are relishing today," he said.

Navjot Singh Sidhu also recited poetry in praise of Pakistan PM Imran Khan at the ground-breaking ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor in Pakistan.
