Islamabad: Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has relaxed the rules for Sikh pilgrims who visit the Gurudwara Sri Kartarpur Sahib on the 550th Prakash Parv of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. He has given this information through Twitter.
I“For Sikhs coming for pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India, I’ve waived off 2 requirements: they won’t need a passport-just a valid ID; ii)they no longer have to register 10 days in advance. Also, no fee to be charged on day of inauguration&on Guruji’s 550th birthday." Khan said in a Twitter post.
Pak PM Imran Khan also said that no fee will be charged on the day of the inauguration of Kartarpur and 550th Prakash Parv of Guru Nanak Dev. On the same day, Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh reached the Dera Baba Nanak border on Thursday to take stock of the preparations for the Kartarpur corridor. Where he said that Pakistan did not allow the delegation of 31 people under the leadership of Cabinet Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa to visit the Gurudwara Shri Nankana Sahib.
The Captain said that on one hand Pakistan is saying that they are building Guru Nanak Dev University and opening the corridor, then what would have been wrong if 31 of their people had already gone to Pakistan to make strong arrangements as a Wafad. CM Amarinder, who reached the Kartarpur Corridor on Thursday, reviewed the works with local administrative officials.
