Wife of Indian Punjab CM visits Kartarpur Sahab
Parmeet Kaur, wife of the Chief Minister of Indian Punjab made her way into Pakistan through the Kartarpur Corridor to pay her respects at Kartarpur Sahab on Monday.
She came to the holy site along with a group of 150 Sikh women pilgrims.
Kartarpur is the town in Narowal district where the first guru of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, spent the last 18 years of his life.
Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee member Inderjeet Singh welcomed the guests to Pakistan.
On the occasion, Miss Kaur said that she was here to pay her respects and was feeling very happy to be at Kartarpur Sahab.
She also thanked the government of Pakistan for allowing her and the people she brought along a hassle-free spiritual experience.
Earlier on February 18, United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres, who was in Pakistan on a four-day visit, visited Kartarpur.
“I was honoured to visit Pakistan’s newly opened Kartarpur Corridor – a corridor of hope, connecting two key Sikh pilgrimage sites,” he later tweeted.
