Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the much-awaited Kartarpur corridor, connecting the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab’s Gurdaspur with Darbar Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan, on November 8, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal announced on Saturday.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “With the blessings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Sikh Panth’s ardaas for ‘khule darshan deedar’ of Sri Kartarpur Sahib to finally become reality! On Nov 8th, history will be created with PM @narendramodi ji inaugurating the #kartarpurcorridor (ICP).”

Pakistan on October 10 had said that no date has been fixed so far for the inauguration of the corridor, albeit it assured that the work on the same is expected to be completed on time.

Both the countries have agreed that Pakistan will allow 5,000 Sikh visitors per day into the country through the corridor.

Besides, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh will lead the first all-party group to the shrine on November 9, an official had said earlier this month.

The group will also visit Sultanpur Lodhi for the main celebration of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru, on November 12.
