“I would like to ask Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Bajwa something, as a soldier. Which Army teaches to violate ceasefire and kill jawans on the other side?” he said.
“Which Army teaches to send people to attack Pathankot and Amritsar? This is cowardness,” he said.
To mark the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev next year, India last week had decided to build the Kartarpur corridor up to the international border between India and Pakistan to let Sikh pilgrims visit the gurdwara on the banks of the river Ravi in Pakistan.
The two neighbouring countries on November 15 had made an official announcement in this regard and had decided to let the pilgrims visit the holy shrine without having to secure a visa.
Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu laid the foundation stone for the construction of the Kartarpur corridor. It will link India’s border district of Gurdaspur with Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan. Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal were among those present.
