Punjab BJP delegation calls on PM, requests reopening of Kartarpur corridor

Chandigarh, Nov 14 (UNI) A high level BJP delegation, led by Punjab unit President Ashwani Sharma, called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to appeal that the Kartarpur corridor be opened by Gurupurab.
“The Gurupurab is on November 19 and we have apprised the Prime Minister that the followers of Guru Nanak be allowed to travel to Kartarpur sahib”, Sharma said and added that the corridor was opened on November 9, 2019 due to the initiative of the BJP.
The Historic gurdwara is a mere 4.7 kilometres from the Indian border and due to total insensitivity of the Congress it was not negotiated that it should be part of the Indian territory during partition in 1947, the BJP leader said.
The Kartarpur corridor has facilitated the pilgrims to travel without a visa for Pakistan. The corridor was closed due to Covid last year and travel restrictions were imposed.
“Now we have requested the honourable Prime Minister that since the Covid situation has improved the sangat be allowed free access to travel,” Sharma said.
Lauding the Prime Minister for an outstanding performance, he said that India has vaccinated over 110 crore people and is the fastest vaccinating country in the world.
The delegation, comprised BJP Vice President Sudan Singh, MP and co incharge of Punjab Dushyant Guatum, BJP general Secretary Tarun Chugh, Narinder Singh Raina, R P Singh, Dyal Singh Sodhi, Harjit Grewal, Rajinder Mohan Singh Chinna, Santhok Singh Gumtala and Vikramjit Cheema.
