Bander Sena Angry Over the Kartarpur Sahib border

In yet another attempt to exhort authorities for initiating talks with Pakistan over the Kartarpur Sahib border, former cricket star of India Navjot Singh Sidhu has written a letter to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.“When opportunity knocks, kindly step up and open the door,” wrote Sidhu, who is also the local bodies minister of Indian Punjab. “Pakistan has shown a positive intent towards the long pending demand of Kartarpur Sahib Corridor.”Sidhu also wrote that Sikh pilgrims have been wanting the corridor to be opened since years. But, he added, progress on the matter came when he visited Pakistan for the oath-taking ceremony of Prime Minister Imran. Even Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that the corridor would be opened without Sikh pilgrims requiring any visa to visit on the 550th birth anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, Sidhu further said. “…it is time for India to take a positive step on this highly emotional issue.”
