Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday announced that “Pakistan is all set to open its doors for Sikhs from all across the globe as the construction work on Kartarpur project enters [its] final stages.”
The prime minister, in a Facebook post, said that the project will be opened to the public on November 9, as promised earlier. “The world’s largest Gurdwara will be visited by Sikhs from across India and other parts of the world,” he added.
Talking about the positive impact of the project on the country, Prime Minister Imran said, “This will become a major religious hub for the Sikh community and will boost the local economy, result in earning foreign exchange for the country and creating jobs in different sectors, including travel and hospitality.
“Religious tourism is on the rise in Pakistan. Earlier, Buddhist monks visited various sites for religious rituals, followed by opening of #Kartarpur corridor,” he said.
