Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders from Punjab led by state unit chief Ashwani Sharma met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 14 November. The 11-member delegation requested him to reopen the Kartarpur corridor before Guru Nanak's gurpurab on 19 November. This and more in our weekly news update from Punjab.

The pilgrimage to the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara was suspended in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The Kartarpur corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan, the final resting place of the first guru and founder of the faith, Guru Nanak, to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district.

The 4.7km corridor was opened for pilgrims on 9 November 2019.

The state unit chief Ashwani Sharma said that Prime Minister Modi assured them that he would look into their demand.
