Lahore (Rana Ali Zohaib): Pakistani and Indian Sikhs have jointly demanded the Indian government to open the Kartarpur corridor.

Sikh pilgrims who came to Pakistan to celebrate Vasakhi Mela performed Nagar Kirtan from Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur to Pak-India Zero Line and a procession of Palki Sahib was taken out in which five dear Sikhs and other guests from Pakistan including Pakistani Sikh Sangat participated. Sardar Satwant Singh, President of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, Sardar Amir Singh, Secretary, Head Granthi Sardar of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib and Sardar Ramesh Singh Arora, MPA of PML-N also participated in the Nagar Kirtan.

Pakistani and Indian Sikhs also stood near the zero line and demanded from the Indian government to reopen the Kartarpur corridor. The Sikhs say that the corridor was reopened after years of prayers but India has closed it again. It can play an important role in the promotion of peace.

Sikh pilgrims reached Lahore from Kartarpur Sahib last evening. Indian guests will also spend the day in Lahore today and will buy gifts for their loved ones. Indian guests will also be given Pani Prashad made from desi ghee, semolina and sugar. Indian Sikh pilgrims will return via Wagah on Thursday, April 22.
