Will Kartarpur Corridor open before Punjab elections? – Movie Reviews Tamil Cinema Reviews Bollywood Gossip
Amritsar: Leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from Punjab met PM Narendra Modi in Delhi on Sunday and submitted a memorandum urging the reopening of the Kartarpur Corridor ahead of the Gurpurab. After this request, now the center is also preparing to open the corridor. According to sources, the government is considering reopening the Kartarpur Corridor with certain conditions. In view of the Punjab elections, this decision is being considered important.
Sources said that talks are going on between the ministries of external affairs and home due to security reasons. A small number of people can be allowed to go there 72 hours before following the corona protocol including social distance, both doses of corona vaccine, RT-PCR test. Let us inform that the Kartarpur Corridor, which opened in November 2019, is closed since March 2020 due to Corona epidemic. With elections proposed in Punjab early next year, the reopening of the corridor could have political gains as well. Therefore, Punjab Congress unit president Navjot Singh Sidhu and CM Charanjit Singh Channi have also demanded to open it.
Last week, Pakistan urged India to reopen the Kartarpur Corridor and allow Sikh devotees to visit the holy site for the birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev. The 4 km long corridor provides a way for Indian Sikh devotees to visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib and no visa is required to reach Karatpur Gurdwara in Pakistan during this journey.
