Kartarpur: No fee for pilgrims on Nov 9, 12
LAHORE: Pakistan will not charge the service fee of $20 from Indian pilgrims visiting the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara on November 9 and 12, Foreign Minister Shah Mohammed Qureshi said on Friday, ending the confusion over the facilitation charges on the two days.
Kartarpur corridor is a “corridor of love” and there is no sinister design in it, he said on allegations that the Kartarpur corridor could be used to promote separatism in Punjab. On the issue of resumption of Indo-Pak dialogue, Qureshi said, “We don’t want dialogue with India for the sake of it”.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Saturday flag off the first batch of over 500 Indian pilgrims that will travel to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province through the Kartarpur Corridor.
