Batala: The Punjab government will soon adopt a resolution for the construction of a free corridor to Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan for the convenience of Sikh pilgrims visiting the shrine every year.

Making this announcement here today Punjab Assembly Speaker Nirmal Singh Kahlon said a resolution to this effect will soon be adopted by the House and sent to the Centre.

There has been a demand to open the corridor between the border town of Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district and Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan to enable Sikh devotees from India to visit the shrine without any travel documents including a visa.

Located on the West bank of the Ravi river in Pakistan's Punjab province just three kms from the Indo-Pak border, the shrine is considered the original abode of Guru Nanak.
