Construction of Kartarpur corridor to begin soon after Pakistan, India approval

The India cabinet today approved the construction of the Kartarpur corridor up to the international border. The Modi government has also said that it will ask Pakistan to build a similar corridor in its side of the border.

However, even before the Indian announcement, Pakistan, on its part, had decided to begin building the Kartarpur corridor later this month, with Prime Minister Imran Khan reportedly laying the foundation for the project.

It was announced by Pakistan yesterday that the government had decided to begin building the Kartarpur corridor later this month.

According to officials, while a date for beginning the construction has not set, the government wants to coincide the announcement with the arrival of Sikh pilgrims, who are currently in the country to observe the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji, the founder of the Sikh faith.

They further said that a survey in this regard has already been conducted, and the government plans to complete the corridor’s construction by next year.
