Following the Pulwama attack on February 14 that killed more than 40 CRPF jawans Sidhu is at centre of political row for his remarks to have a peaceful talk with Pakistan.

In one of his tweets Singh asked Khan to show guts and handover Jaish-e-Mohammed leaders Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed to India.

Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Masood Azhar is in Pakistan under government protection and China has been repeatedly thwarting efforts of United Nations in designating him a global terrorist.

China is Pakistan’s ally and its move is in consideration to the protection of Beijin’s economic investments in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Former cricketer Sidhu entered into politics in 2004 as a BJP MP and in 2017 joined Congress. Last year he visited Pakistan to attend the oath-taking ceremony of Khan as PM and greeted the Pak army chief then.

India now has a different policy after Pulwama attack, unlike the Mumbai 26/11 and Pathankot airbase strike. It will not approach Islamabad with evidence. In fact friendly nations will be contacted with the same in unmasking Pakistan.

Meanwhile, following security review meeting headed by chairman of state chief secretary BVR Subrahmanyam in Jammu and Kashmir security of eighteen separatists and 155 politicians have been withdrawn.

The leaders who are affected with the state move are PDP leader Wahid Parra, SAS Geelani, Aga Syed Mosvi, Maulvi Abbas Ansari, Yaseen Malik, Saleem Geelani, Shahid ul Islam, Zaffar Akbar Bhat, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Farooq Ahmed Kichloo, Masroor Abbas Ansari, Aga Syed Abul Hussain, Abdul Gani Shah and Mohd Musadiq Bhat.
