11-member Sikh team meets Modi


A Sikh delegation has met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him to reopen the Kartar-pur corridor to ensure pilgrimage to the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan.

The 11-member dele-gation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders from Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir and Delhi met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday at his official residence in New Delhi.

The pilgrimate was sus-pended in March 2020 when international travel was suspended owing to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Sikh leaders demanded the reopening of Kartarpur Corridor before Gurpurab which marks the birth anniversary of ‘Guru Nanak Dev’. It will be cele-brated on November 19 this year.—INP
