Pak should be more 'responsive' on Kartarpur, says Punjab CM

New Delhi, Mar 15 (UNI) Amid reports that Pakistan government has been 'insincere' about the Kartarpur Corridor, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday urged Imran Khan regime to be more 'responsive'.
“Pakistan’s response to India’s demands on Kartarpur Corridor is totally inadequate. The Corridor won’t serve its true purpose with such limitations. Sikhs have been deprived of Kartarpur gurdwara darshan for 70 years, need to allow more people every day, including from overseas,” the Chief Minister tweeted.
He also reiterated his demand for visa-free ‘khule darshan’ at the Gurdwara for Indians of all faiths, from India and overseas, seven days a week.
“Pilgrims should be allowed to go through Kartarpur Corridor for ‘khule darshan’ at the historic Gurdwara all 7 days a week. Special permits should be good for identity, the visa requirement needs to be waived. Pakistan has to be more responsive on this issue,” he wrote.
A Joint Statement issued after the meeting said - "Both sides held expert level discussions between the technical experts on the alignment and other details of the proposed corridor. It was agreed to hold the next meeting at Wagah on 2 April 2019".
The next meeting will be, however, preceded by a meeting of the technical experts on March 19 at the proposed zero points to finalize the alignment.
