Venkiah Naidu lays foundation stone for construction of Kartarpur corridor
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu laid the foundation stone for the construction of Dera Baba Nanak-Kartarpur Sahib road corridor on Monday. Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, Governor VP Badnore, Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari, Hardeep Puri and several other ministers were also present at the ceremony. Kartarpur Sahib in Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province is located across the Ravi River and is about four km from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine. The demand to build a corridor linking India’s border district of Gurdaspur with the historic gurdwara, the final resting place of Sikhism’s founder Guru Nanak Dev, in Pakistan has been a long-pending demand of the Sikh community.
