Kartarpur Corridor to be inaugurated by PM on 8 November

On 8 November, history will be created with PM Narendra Modi ji inaugurating the Kartarpur Corridor: Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal

Union Minister of Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal said today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would inaugurate the corridor to Sri Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan on 8 November. Badal said Modi would inaugurate a coordinated check post on the Indian side.

The Union minister tweeted, “With the blessings of Guru Nanak Dev ji, Sikh Panth’s ardaas (prayer) for ‘khule darshan deedar’ (public viewing) of Sri Kartarpur Sahib to finally become reality! On Nov 8th, history will be created with PM @narendramodi ji inaugurating the #kartarpurcorridor (ICP). 1/2

Last week, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh invited President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Modi to participate in the 550th Prakash Parv festival of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh guru. This includes the inauguration of the historic corridor. In November last year, India and Pakistan agreed to establish the Kartarpur corridor.

This corridor will connect Dera Baba Nanak Gurdwara located in Gurdaspur district of Punjab with Darbar Sahib located in Kartarpur. From this corridor, Indian Sikh travellers can go to the shrine only without a visa. It was founded in 1522 by Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the Sikh Panth.

While BJP MP Subramanian Swamy has said the work on the Kartarpur corridor project should be stopped in the interest of the nation and there should be no talks with Pakistan on any issue, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said the Modi government was committed to completing the Kartarpur Sahib corridor within the stipulated time.

In August, several Punjab Congress leaders, including two State Cabinet ministers, on Sunday, hit out at BJP MP Subramanian Swamy for his remarks that the work on the Kartarpur corridor should be stopped in the interest of the nation. Senior Congress leaders, including eight party MLAs, castigated Swamy and said his comments on the Kartarpur corridor had hurt sentiments of the Sikhs.
