Special Sikh jatha to Pakistan on Gurpurb: MEA

New Delhi, November 19

India will send a special Sikh jatha to Gurdwara Janam Asthan in Nankana Sahib (Nov 27- Dec 1) on the occasion of the 551st birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Anurag Srivastava announced here on Thursday. However, there is no move yet to reopen the Kartarpur Corridor, he indicated.

The visit of a truncated jatha will be as per the 1974 bilateral protocol between India and Pakistan. There is, no confirmation yet from the Pakistan side. Pakistan had in June unilaterally reopened the Kartarpur Corridor to commemorate Maharaja Ranjit Singh`s death anniversary, but India had rejected the offer owing to the pandemic.

Officials say it has been over a year but Pakistan is yet to construct a bridge over the Budhi Ravi channel. — TNS
