"The state Director General of Police (DGP) also constantly talking about this. In such a situation, if Sidhu and Channi keep praising Pakistan, then this becomes a subject of the security concern of Punjab state," he said further.

He also referred to Sidhu pitching for opening Punjab border with trade with Pakistan.

"They are talking about opening the border, we are also saying open border for trade but look at the situation. If you open border looking at the current situation then multiples weapons, terrorism, and the drugs will enter in the state," the AAP leader said.
"It is a matter of concern and the AAP is taking this very seriously," Chadha said.
