Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will today lay the foundation stone at the ground breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor. The corridor will link Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur in Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province the final resting place of Sikh faith’s founder Guru Nanak and the international border with India facilitating Sikh pilgrims across the border.
Islamabad followed up India’s decision to develop the Kartarpur corridor last week and invited a few of Indian ministers to attend the ceremony in Pakistan.
Amid controversy over his visit, Punjab Cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu arrived in Pakistan on Tuesday through the Attari-Wagah joint check post around 30 km from Amritsar for Wednesday’s foundation stone laying event.
Sidhu said the Kartarpur Corridor has the potential to erase enmity between India and Pakistan and bring peace in the subcontinent. He heaped praises on “friend” Imran Khan for ensuring that the corridor became a reality.
