Corridor of Kartarpur: Corridor of Kartarpur: Sushma tied up, two more ministers for Pak event India News



ISLAMABAD / NEW DELHI: India will send two Union ministers, Harsimrat Kaur and Hardeep Puri, to the groundbreaking ceremony for the Kartarpur Corridor in Pakistan, even though Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday rejected Pakistan's invitation.

Islamabad had invited Swaraj, Punjab CM Amarinder Singh and Minister of State Navjot Singh Sidhu to the ceremony on November 28, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Twitter on Twitter.

However, Swaraj responded by saying she would not be able to travel to Kartarpur Sahib due to past commitments, including the election campaign in Telangana. However, she said that since she must pay attention to the feelings of the Indian Sikh citizens and the importance of smooth and easy access to the holy place, India would see the trade union ministers Harsimrat Kaur Badal (Minister of Food Processing) and Hardeep Puri (MoS, Housing and urban affairs) at Kartarpur. She also expressed the hope that Pakistan will accelerate the construction of the corridor.

Corridor development was high on the agenda for the Swaraj Qureshi meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, as proposed by Khan in September this year. The meeting was canceled by India after the murder of SPOs in J & K.

Pakistan said in a statement that its Kartarpur spirit can be a step in the right direction from conflict to cooperation, hostility to peace and enmity to friendship.

"On behalf of Pakistan, I submitted an invitation to Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj @SushmaSwaraj, Capt. Amarinder Singh @capt_amarinder & Navjot Singh Sidhu @sherryontopp to attend the laying of the cornerstone at #Kartarpura on 28 November 2018. "Qureshi tweeted.
