Its a historic day for the sikh devotees across the world as they will soon get a corridor that will allow them to visit the Kartarpur Saahib Gurudwara in Pakistan.
The foundation stone for the Dera Baba Nanak-Kartarpur Sahib Corridor on the Indian side was laid by Vice President Venkaiah Naidu and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh today.
Indian government will build and develop the corridor from Gurdaspur district to the International Border to facilitate Sikh pilgrims from India to visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur on the banks of the Ravi river.
Kartarpur is located in Shakargarh in Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab. Guru Nanak Dev, the first Sikh Guru, had spent more than 18 years of his life there.
The Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara is located about three-four km from the border in Pakistan.
Minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari was grateful that his ministry has been entrusted with the task of building this corridor.
He promised that the same will be completed in shortest possible time.
Amarinder singh promised all possible help and cooperation to the pilgrims who will use the corridor in future.
