‘Address Kartarpur damage’
India urges Pakistan to rectify deficiencies in repair work
- Pakistan should address the deficiencies that led to the toppling of certain structures in the holy Kartarpur Sahib complex during an afternoon storm on Saturday. The comment came hours after India took up the matter with Pakistan as urgent repairs were carried out on the complex by the authorities in Pakistan.
- India has urged Pakistan that in deference to the sentiments of the Sikh community, the deficiencies which led to the damage to the newly constructed structures be urgently rectified and remedied, damages to the structure caused great consternation to the members of the Sikh community.
- Kartarpur Sahib is in the midst of year long festivities associated with the 550th birth anniversary Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, and has emerged as a major centre of Sikh pilgrimage in Pakistan over the last few months, after the corridor from India was operationalised.
