Kartarpur proves our intention of peace: Pak
New Delhi, November 25
As India and Pakistan prepare to lay the Kartarpur corridor project foundation, Islamabad hopes it will send a message globally.
Ahead of the ground-breaking ceremony by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on November 28, his Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhary today said the step proved that Islamabad meant peace.
In remarks alluding to the Modi government’s U-turn on proposed talks in September in New York, Chaudhary tweeted: “Pakistan, through its conduct, has once again showed who stands for peace in South Asia and which force is not sincere.”
Meanwhile, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, who, along with Cabinet colleague Harsimrat Badal, will attend the ceremony, hailed the movement forward. Calling it “one pilgrimage every Sikh longs for”, Puri tweeted: “I feel blessed that I will be able to pay obeisance at Gurdwara Sri Kartarpur Sahib.”
The American Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has also welcomed the move to open the corridor. However, sounding a cautionary note, it said no individual should take undue credit, referring to leaders across parties in Punjab and the Centre patting their own backs.
