Posters of former Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and Pakistan PM Imran Khan were seen in Amritsar. The posters read, "Navjot Singh Sidhu and Imran Khan are the real heroes, for opening Kartarpur Corridor." Master Harpal Singh, a Councilor from Verka who put up the posters said, "We wanted to congratulate the people who made it happen, Sidhu Sahab aur Imran Khan. More posters are to be put tomorrow."

Sidhu, who had earlier attended the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur corridor, has not been included in a Congress delegation, which will be visiting the gurdwara on November 9.
Navjot Singh Sidhu's visit to Pakistan in 2018 had drawn criticism from some quarters in India after he hugged the Pakistani Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the swearing-in ceremony of Imran Khan.
