Chandigarh: Pakistan's prime minister-elect Imran Khan called up cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Sidhu to extend an invitation to his oath-taking ceremony in Islamabad on August 18, the Punjab Minister said in a statement on Saturday. Sidhu has accepted the invitation and informed the Union Home Ministry and the office of the Punjab Chief Minister about his intention to attend the swearing-in ceremony.
