Amritsar, September 10

Ahead of “jyoti jot” (death anniversary) of Guru Nanak Dev, the SGPC has urged the Centre to reopen the Kartarpur corridor.

For the first time since the inception of Kartarpur corridor from Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur, the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) had announced to celebrate the occasion that falls on September 22.

Satwant Singh, president, PSGPC, also took an opportunity to urge the Indian Government to open the Kartarpur corridor from Dera Baba Nanak side for the Indian pilgrims between September 20 and 22.

Due to Covid-19 threat, the movement of pilgrims was restricted temporarily. Though Pakistan had reopened the shrine since June 29, the Indian Government had continuously suspended the pilgrimage registration to Kartarpur gurdwara since March 16 in view of the pandemic.
