As Imran Khan's swearing-in ceremony as Pakistan Prime Minister is set to take place on August 18, Navjot Singh Sidhu accepted the invitation and will be attending the ceremony.
The decision came shortly after Khan extended a personal invite over a telephone conversation to the Punjab Cabinet Minister to attend his swearing-in ceremony.
According to Punjab's Information and Public Relations Department, Khan also thanked Sidhu for praising him in a press conference on August 2.
Meanwhile, the Punjab Minister informed the Union Home Ministry and the office of the Chief Minister of Punjab regarding his intention to attend the swearing-in ceremony. He further revealed that he was in talks with former Indian skipper Kapil Dev, who has also been invited to the event.
The PTI on Friday confirmed that the Prime Minister-in-waiting will take oath at the President House in Islamabad on August 18.
