Lahore (Staff Report): Evacuee Trust Property Board Secretary Tariq Wazir has said that more than 40 percent development work at Kartarpur Corridor has been completed so far, and the corridor will be ready to be functional till November 2019.
Talking to the media, Wazir said that special forensic audit of the ETPB for three years (2016 to 2018) had been started on the order of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Last year, PM Khan performed the ground breaking of Kartarpur corridor.
PM Imran, accompanied by Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and his cabinet members reached Punjab Narowal’s district to break the ground for Kartarpur border corridor that connects India’s Gurdaspur district to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib located in Pakistan.
The 4-km-long corridor will connect Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur district with Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan’s Narowal district. The corridor will provide visa-free access to the Indian Sikh pilgrims to the shrine.
The Gurdwara Kartarpur Darbar Sahib holds religious significance for the Sikh community. It is where Baba Guru Nanak settled down after his travels as a missionary. He lived there for 18 years until his death in 1539.
