HAPPY TO HAVE MET SIDHU, HOPE TO HAVE MORE SUCH MEETINGS, SAYS CAPT AMARINDER
Chandigarh, November 26: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday hoped that he and Navjot Singh Sidhu will continue to have cordial meetings like they had yesterday, where they spoke a lot about cricket, apart from a host of other things.
Both were in good mood during the one-hour luncheon meeting, to which he had invited Sidhu after the latter expressed interest in meeting him, said Captain Amarinder. “I was satisfied and happy with the meeting, and so was Sidhu,” he added.
Quashing media speculation of serious discussions between the two, the Chief Minister quipped that contrary to what was being suggested, “we did not make any plans for Punjab or India or the world.” “We just had some simple talks, during which Sidhu shared a lot of his cricketing experiences,” said Captain Amarinder, adding that unfortunately the media was making a mountain out of a molehill.
Taking a dig at the Shiromani Akali Dal’s remark on him hosting a banquet for Sidhu, the Chief Minister said while his former cabinet colleague had boiled vegetables, he himself partook a `missi roti with dahi’ during the lunch. “Does that look like a banquet to the Akalis?” he remarked.
