Punjab:9/11/19: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that opening of Kartarpur Corridor and Integrated Check Post would bring double happiness. He was addressing a gathering at Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur after inaugurating the Kartarpur Corridor today. He said it will be easy to pay obeisance at Darbar Sahib Gurudwara after the opening of Kartarpur Corridor. He also thanked Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan for understanding India’s sentiment.
Asserting that he is fortunate to be able to dedicate the Kartarpur corridor to the country, Prime Minister said he has a feeling like doing Kar Sewa.
