Union Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Friday said the national highway from the Indo-Pak border through the Kartarpur corridor to the holy city of Sultanpur Lodhi had been renamed as Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Marg by the NDA government.

The Union minister said she had received a letter from Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari that the ministry had acceded to her request and decided to rename the new National Highway 703AA in the name of Guru Saheb.

The decision had also been conveyed to the Public Works Department of the Punjab Government as well as the National Highways Authority of India for necessary action. She said both organisations had been directed to implement this decision with immediate effect.
