Kartapur Corridor: Imran Khan opens Corridor, PM Modi flags off the pilgrimage

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated the Kartarpur corridor, flagging off the first batch of over 500 Indian pilgrims here, including former prime minister Manmohan Singh and Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal. The corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan, the final resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev, to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in this Punjab district.

PM Modi says, "The Corridor, Integrated Check Post will serve thousands of devotees daily. Guru Nanak's teachings are being translated into various languages so that the next generation can also be enriched from them.'

 India and Pakistan signed an agreement last month, paving the way for the inauguration of the Kartarpur corridor. According to the pact, Pakistan will allow 5,000 Indian pilgrims daily to visit Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib.
