Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday congratulated his government over the construction of the Kartarpur Corridor in ‘record time’ ahead of the 550th birthday celebrations of the founder of Sikh religion Baba Guru Nanak.
“I want to congratulate our government for readying Kartarpur, in record time, for Guru Nanak jee’s 550th birthday celebrations. Kartarpur ready to welcome Sikh pilgrims,” the prime minister said on his Twitter handle.
The PM also shared multiple images of the fully illuminated building of the complex, including the courtyard, road, and checking counters.
Later, he also presided over a meeting to review the arrangements made for the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor and facilitation of the Sikh pilgrims coming from India and across the world.
The meeting was attended by Minister for Religious Affairs Pir Noorul Haq Qadri, Interior Minister Brig (retd) Ijaz Ahmed Shah, federal secretaries of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, interior, defence and religious affairs besides special secretary for finance and other senior officers.
The premier expressed satisfaction over the facilities offered to the Sikh pilgrims. Likely to be inaugurated on November 9, the Kartarpur Corridor would make Pakistan a religious hub for Sikhs from India as well as across the globe.
The corridor will provide visa-free access to Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib – the final resting place of Baba Guru Nanak.
