Punjab CM seeks access to Gurdwara Sahib in Pakistan
"This will allow the faithful to pay their respects at the Gurdwara Sahib in Kartarpur," said Amarinder Singh, pointing out that Kartarpur is located across the river Ravi around 4 km from the border near Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district.
The Chief Minister noted that the 550th Birth anniversary of the first Guru is being observed in November 2019.
He pointed out one of the historical demands of the Sikh community has been to have access to the revered Gurdwara Sahib in Kartarpur.
"The state government has been requesting the Centre time and again for taking up the matter with the government of Pakistan for a corridor from the international border to Kartarpur," he added.
