Pakistan: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday announced several concessions for Indian pilgrims going to Darbar Sahib gurdwara at Kartarpur.
“For Sikhs coming for pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India, I’ve waived off 2 requirements: they won’t need a passport-just a valid ID; ii)they no longer have to register 10 days in advance. Also, no fee to be charged on day of inauguration & on Guruji’s 550th birthday.” Khan tweeted.
The corridor is set to be inaugurated on November 9 when a 575-member Jatha will cross the corridor to Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib. Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, Union Ministers Hardeep Puri, and Harsimrat Kaur Badal are among the first batch of pilgrims.
