Katarpur corridor: A road to peace between India and Pakistan?

Calling Peace Imran Khan Makes U-turn on 'Small Men Occupying Big Office' Tweet Says it Wasn't For PM Modi

When asked by a reporter about Sidhu's friendship with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, the SAD leader said, "Yes I think he (Imran Khan) offered him (Sidhu) to fight election from Pakistan". So, Khan delivered a "googly" to ensure the presence of two Indian ministers at the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the Kartarpur Corridor. India's Ministry of External Affairs had criticised Khan for for raising the Kashmir dispute in his speech at the foundation-laying ceremony.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday assured that he will look into the case of a 33-year-old Indian prisoner, who has been languishing in a Pakistani jail after being arrested for illegally entering the country from Afghanistan, reportedly to meet a girl he had befriended online.

In one incident, terrorists abducted and gunned down three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir, marking a sharp escalation in militancy in the state which India says is backed by Pakistan.

Replying to another question on President Donald Trump's tweets on stopping aid to Pakistan at a time when the U.S. is seeking its cooperation on Afghanistan, the State Department Spokesperson stressed the need for Islamabad to build confidence in bilateral relations.

"The mindset of people here has changed", Khan said, according to news agency PTI.

Pakistan is projecting the corridor as a goodwill gesture.

Imran Khan said that instead of seeking loan, we demanded technology from the Chinese government, adding that the country progress when technologyis transferred.

The Pakistan Prime Minister mentioned that why to have conditions for talks on India's condition that terror and talks can't go hand-in-hand. However, he said the gesture for peace can not be one-sided.

The "Kartarpur corridor" will however lead from the Indian border straight to the gurdwara, with the sides fenced off.

"Tensions with India are not hidden from anyone but our approach is people-centric and we need peace for people to prosper".

The Indian Foreign Minister released a statement expressing "grave concern at the reports of attempts being made during the ongoing visit of the Indian pilgrims to Pakistan, to incite communal disharmony and intolerance and promote secessionist tendencies with the objective of undermining India's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

"We can try but the rest is up to India".

The chief minister of Indian Punjab, Amarinder Singh, while welcoming the Kartarpur corridor opening, refused an invitation to attend the ground-breaking ceremony citing Pakistan's support for terrorism in Indian Punjab.

However, Khan raked up the Kashmir issue saying that it was the only festering problem between the two countries and even that can be solved with "boldness and decisiveness" of political leadership.
