Kartarpur Corridor:  fight for credit amid new hopes

New Delhi: India and Pakistan consider developing a corridor that will help Sikhs to travel to the resting place of Guru Nanak in Kartarpur, Pakistan.

Former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu dubbed this development as the result of a hug he had given to Pakistan’s army chief in August. It was a major news during Prime Minister Khan’s swearing-in ceremony.

Mr. Singh tweeted he was grateful to the government.

Meanwhile, political wrinkling for credit for the corridor have already started over inclusion of the leaders of BJP’s ally Akali Dal in the central government ceremony.

“Intense politics and a fight for credit over the Kartarpur corridor for Sikh pilgrims saw a Punjab minister today black-taping his name and that of Chief Minister Amarinder Singh from a plaque, hours before a ground-breaking ceremony by Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, “reported NDTV.

Meanwhile, India will send two union ministers to attend the ceremony to be held in Pakistan on Wednesday.

Not a major step in diplomatic ties, the corridor between Kartarpur and Indian border district of Gurdaspur, however, is significant—at least it fructifies the long-standing demand of the Sikh community.

The first to moot the idea was Prime Minister Atal Bihri Vajpayee in 1999 when he took a famous bus ride to Lahore.
