PM Modi inaugurates Kartarpur Corridor
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated Kartarpur Corridor on Saturday and thanked Pakistan premier for respecting the sentiments of India.
PM Modi said he felt blessed to be there and called it a new historic chapter which was scripted.
The Kartarpur Sahib Corridor, a 4.7-kilometre-long passage which connects Dera Baba Nanak Sahib in India’s Gurdaspur and Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan will formally be opened today for pilgrims three days ahead of 550th anniversary of the founder of Sikhism Guru Nanak Dev on November 12.
India and Pakistan are set to hold separate ceremonies on either side of the border to inaugurate the corridor which will provide access to Indian pilgrims to the final resting place of Guru Nanak Dev who died at the start of the 16th century.
