Imran Khan Invites His Cricket Friends For Swearing-in Ceremony

Imran Khan has decided not to invite any world leader for his swearing-in ceremony.

Khan will take oath in a simple ceremony at Aiwan-e-Sadr (President House).

There will be no show of extravagance, and the event will completely be a national event, his party said. 

Khan has sent invitations to cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Sidhu and Bollywood actor Aamir Khan. 

So far only Sidhu has publicly acknowledged and accepted the invite.

Calling the Pakistan prime minister-in-waiting a “man of character”, Sidhu said sportsmen have the ability to build bridges and unite people. “It is (a) great honour, I accept the invitation. Men of genius are admired, men of power are feared, but men of character are trusted. Khan Sahab is a man of character. He can be trusted. Sportsmen build bridges, break barriers, unite people,” the former cricketer said. (With inputs from Indian Express)
