Chandigarh, June 9

The Union Road Transport and Highways Ministry has issued directions to the National Highways Authority of India to develop a new expressway to connect Sultanpur Lodhi, Goindwal Sahib, Khadoor Sahib and Tarn Taran with Amritsar. It will create a new Sikh circuit covering five religious shrines as part of the proposed Delhi-Amritar-Katra expressway.

Union Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said she had received a communication from Union Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari which sought keeping the sentiments of Sikhs worldwide under consideration.

She said Gadkari had assured her that he had got the entire issue examined, and now a new greenfield alignment would be developed via Nakodar to cover all Sikh shrines associated with five different Sikh Guru Sahiban.

Gadkari had also told her that the expressway would be extended to Dera Baba Nanak to provide connectivity to Kartarpur Sahib corridor. — TNS
