“This is a corridor of infinite possibilities, of peace, of prosperity, of opening up of trade relations... The seed Imran Khan had sown three months ago has become a plant” Punjab minister NAVJOT SINGH SIDHU travelled to Pakistan the day before the country’s prime minister Imran Khan was to lay a ceremonial stone to mark the building of a ‘corridor’ between the gurdwara in Kartarpur, where Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, lived out his last years, and Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district over the Indian border. The building of the link, mooted for two decades, was given fresh impetus by Sidhu’s visit in August. Punjab CM Amarinder Singh turned down an invitation to Kartarpur on the grounds that Pakistan continues to facilitate terrorism in India. But Sidhu, refusing to be cowed down by criticism, was effusive in his praise for Pakistan’s leadership and the effort to build the corridor.
