LAHORE, Pakistan: The former Indian Cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu has said that Kartarpur will be a peace Corridor between Pakistan and India.

Talking to media at Lahore Press Club after he arrived in Pakistan through Wagah Border to attend the Kartarpur Corridor groundbreaking ceremony, Navjot Sidhu said that the religion should never be seen with a political eye.

Navjot Singh Sidhu – who is also a Minister in Indian Punjab – said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has fulfilled its promise. He said that he is thankful to Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.

“Kartarpur Corridor has delighted 120 million Sikhs; promise made three months ago is accomplishing now,” Navjot Singh Sidhu said.

Navjot Sidhu said that the Indian people are waiting for Pakistan-India Cricket matches as well.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Indian journalists has also reached Pakistan for coverage of the ceremony.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will perform the groundbreaking of the four kilometers long Kartarpur Corridor tomorrow (Wednesday), which will connect Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur area of Punjab’s Narowal District with Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur District.

Pakistan will build the corridor from the Indian border to the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur while the other part from Dera Baba Nanak in Indian Punjab’s Gurdaspur District upto the border will be constructed by India.

It will facilitate the Sikh pilgrims visiting their most sacred sites in Pakistan.
