Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be attending the inauguration of the Kartarpur Corridor project on the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev in the last week of November.
While Pakistan media reported that there was a possibility of PM Modi making it to the event, an Akali Dal delegation met the Prime Minister and confirmed his presence at the landmark event.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan will inaugurate the Kartarpur Corridor project. A Pakistan daily said that Khan’s office had had an official communication with PM Modi. The Pakistan government has also started preparations for Baba Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary celebrations.
Meanwhile, India has proposed new dates to hold talks with Pakistan on the outstanding technical issues pertaining to the construction of Kartarpur corridor. The new dates are tentatively for the coming week.
The deadlock on the Indo-Pakistan officials level talks will soon be removed in spite of the long-pending issue on a diplomatic visa. A source said, “The new development only shows India’s commitment to the corridor.”
