Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today said Pakistan minister Sheikh Rashid’s disclosure that the Kartarpur corridor was the brainchild of their army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa had exposed Islamabad’s nefarious intent behind the initiative.

The CM said Rashid’s remark that “the corridor would hurt India, which would forever remember the wound inflicted on it by General Bajwa with the Kartarpur corridor” was an open and blatant threat to India’s security and integrity and warned Pakistan against attempting any misadventure. 

The CM said he had all along maintained that while as a Sikh he was elated at the opening of the corridor, that provided access to Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara, the threat it posed to our country could not be ignored.” He said he had repeatedly warned that Pakistan was trying to woo the Sikhs by opening the corridor to further the ISI-backed “Referendum 2020” agenda.

This was evident from the fact that Bajwa had disclosed the decision to build the corridor to then minister Navjot Singh Sidhu at the time of Imran Khan’s swearing-in, he pointed out. “Khan had not even taken over then, yet the Pakistan army chief spoke about the matter to Sidhu.”

Cautioning Sidhu, the CM urged him not to allow his friendship with the Pakistan PM cloud his judgement.
