Peoples Democratic Party chief and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said the Kartarpur corridor will rebuild the relation between Indian and Pakistan.
Taking to social networking site Twitter Mehbooba wrote: “It is quite amusing how some tv channels are trying to distort a gesture like Kartarpur into some kind of conspiracy to create Khalistan . One fails to understand why allowing people pilgrimage to Guru Nanak Dev ji’s birth place would assume such undertones.”
“Kartarpur can be a new beginning of reconciliation between the two neighbours.We cannot change our borders but let us make them irrelevant by facilitating trade & encouraging people to people contact. This will usher in peace & progress for both India & Pakistan,” Mehbooba tweeted.
Earlier on Wednesday, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation of a Kartarpur corridor project.India’s Ministry of External Affairs had criticised Khan for for raising the Kashmir dispute in his speech at the foundation-laying ceremony.
