Kartarpur| Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the much-awaited Kartarpur Corridor between India and Pakistan on Saturday, on the occasion of the 550th Prakash Parv of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. PM Narendra Modi and Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan will inaugurate this corridor separately. The Kartarpur Corridor connects the Dera Baba Nanak Gurdwara located in Gurdaspur district of India with the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will send the first batch of Indian pilgrims to Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara, while the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan will welcome them.

Before inaugurating the corridor, PM Modi will pay obeisance at Gurdwara Ber Saheb in Sultanpur Lodhi. After this, the Naka program will go to Dera Baba Nanak. It is worth noting that in Sultanpur Lodhi, Guru Nanak Dev had spent many important years of his life.

Strict security arrangements

In view of the Prime Minister’s program, the Punjab Police has made elaborate security arrangements. At the same time, ACPG has also taken command.

Many big celebrities will be involved in the opening ceremony

The inauguration ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor will be attended by many big and VVIP celebrities including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, actor and MP Sunny Deol.

Special arrangements for devotees

Special arrangements have been made for the devotees at Sultanpur Lodhi. More than 35 thousand people are staying in the tent house built in Sultanpur Lodhi. These tent houses have all kinds of facilities from modern washrooms. The movement of people starts about 2 kilometres from Gurdwara Ber Sahib. Arrangements have been made to enable 50,000 people to sit and eat together at one time.

Pakistan once again took a U-Turn

On the other hand, Pakistan has once again reversed its stand. Pakistan said that it will also charge a fee of $ 20 from the first batch to visit the Kartarpur Gurdwara on November 9. Earlier, Pakistan had announced a relaxation on the inauguration day. The announcement was made by Pakistan PM Imran Khan himself.

Passport must for passengers

On Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar had said that passports would be necessary for Indian devotees going to Kartarpur Sahib. Kumar said, “Conflicting reports are coming from Pakistan. We have an MoU and that has not changed. According to that passport is necessary.”

Army vs Government in Pakistan

On this corridor, differences in government and military were made public in Pakistan many times. First PM Imran Khan said that passports are not mandatory for the devotees. While the army clearly stated that the passport will be mandatory for the journey. After this, a day before the visit, the army also announced the collection of entry fees. While Imran had told the devotees on the first week last week not to take $ 20 as entry fee.
