Prime Minister Imran Khan is all set to inaugurate Kartarpur Corridor on Saturday (Nov 9, 2019) to facilitate entry of Sikh pilgrims from India into Gurdwara Dera Sahib at Kartarpur in Narowal district of Pakistan. 

The Corridor is being opened on the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji beginning from Tuesday.

The landmark project initiated on the directives of Imran Khan as a peace-building measure for the region and to promote interfaith harmony, is entirely funded and executed by Pakistan as a gift for Sikh community.

Initially, 5,000 yatrees (pilgrims) per day are expected to come from India.
