Ahead of polls in Rajasthan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara, one of the holiest Sikh shrines, went to Pakistan and Congress is to be blamed for it.
He slammed the Congress’ lack of vision and sensitivity for having agreed to such an arrangement.
Campaigning in Rajasthan, PM Modi referred to the Kartarpur corridor being built between the two nations to enable Sikh pilgrims from India to visit the gurdwara and questioned why this was not done 70 years ago.
He went to the extent of saying that correcting Congress mistakes was his destiny.
Prime Minister was speaking at a rally in Hanumangarh on the last day of campaigning for the polls to be held on Friday.
During the ground-breaking ceremony for the Kartarpur corridor in Pakistan, union minister Hardeep Singh Puri had said the corridor “should have been operationalised many years ago.
The cartographer who made the (boundary) line made a fundamental mistake.”
The corridor was inaugurated in India on November 27 by Vice President Venkaiah Naidu and Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh and in Pakistan it was inaugurated by Prime Minister Imran Khan.>
