    Kartarpur Corridor, connecting Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India’s Punjab with Darbar Sahib — also called Kartarpur Sahib — in Narowal district in Pakistan’s Punjab, was thrown open on Saturday facilitating the first batch of more than 550 pilgrims to travel to the last resting place of Guru Nanak Dev. Prime MinisterNarendra Modi flagged off the pilgrimage and handed over the flag of the Jatha to Jathedar Akal Takht.

    On Saturday morning, PM Modi landed in Sultanpur Lodhi and paid obeisance at the Gurdwara Ber Sahib. He will be inaugurating the passenger terminal building, also known as Integrated Check Post, where pilgrims will get clearance to travel through the newly-built 4.5 km-long Corridor.

    While addressing a public gathering at Dera Baba Nanak, Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked all who have been associated with the project. He also thanked Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khanfor understanding Indian sentiments and cooperating with Modi-government in this project.
