Accordingly amid the raging row over his Pakistan visit, cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu said Friday it was Congress president Rahul Gandhi who sent him there for attending the foundation laying ceremony of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor and that he was his "captain".  Meanwhile Sidhu's visit had riled Punjab Chief Minister Capt. (retd) Amarinder Singh, who said on record he tried to dissuade Sidhu, a member of his cabinet, following a grenade attack on a religious congregation in Amritsar that left three people dead, but he paid no heed. 



Furthermore Singh had blamed Pakistan's spy agency ISI for the attack. Sidhu told a press conference here when asked about Singh's disapproval of his Pakistan trip "Rahul Gandhi is his captain. It is he who sent him to Pakistan. Rahul Gandhi is the captain of the captain (Amarinder) also". Sidhu said Congress leader, however, described the Punjab chief minister as a "father figure" to him.

Moreover when replying to a question about Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi's remark that Prime Minister Imran Khan's "googly" compelled India to send two union ministers for the Kartarpur event, Sidhu said, "How do you bowl a googly to a batsman. He had never left such a ball."
