The Indian government has finally announced to reopen the Kartarpur Corridor on November 17 following the widespread demand from Sikhs as they get ready to celebrate Baba Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary.

Sikh members of Indian Parliament from the BJP had requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to open the Kartarpur Corridor, according to the Indian media.

A delegation comprising the Punjab BJP led by president Ashwani Sharma called on Modi Sunday and made an appeal to reopen the Kartarpur Corridor by Gurpurab. Meanwhile, all Sikh organisations across India also asked the government to reopen the corridor, according to sources.

“In a major decision, that will benefit large numbers of Sikh pilgrims, PM @Narendramodi govt has decided to re-open the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor from tomorrow, Nov 17,” Indian Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah wrote on Twitter.
