Kartarpur Corridor will become a symbol of love, peace for both countries, says V-P Naidu
Vice President, M Venkaiah Naidu laid the foundation stone for the construction of Kartarpur Sahib Corridor. It will link Dera Baba Nanak in Punjab’s Gurdaspur district with Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan. This corridor will allow lakhs of Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit the holy shrine throughout the year.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said, “This is a momentous and historic day that today we are fulfilling the wish of thousands of Sikh devotees.”
Union Minister, Harsimrat Badal, while speaking at the ceremony, said that with this corridor the long wait of Sikh pilgrims is over now.
The ceremony is being performed at the Mann village of Gurdaspur district in Punjab. The Shiromani Akali Dal’s (SAD) party leader, Sukhbir Singh Badal, and its workers are also present at the groundbreaking ceremony of the proposed corridor to Shri Kartarpur Sahib.
On November 22, India’s Union Cabinet took the decision to build the corridor from Dera Baba Nanak to the International Border. On the very same day, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, also announced that Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, would also lay the foundation of Kartarpur corridor on November 28.
