Dera Baba Nanak, Nov 9: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called for upholding the teachings and values of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
Addressing the gathering, while participating in the special event organised on the occasion of inauguration of the Integrated Check Post (ICP) and the Kartarpur Corridor, Modi said here, "I feel honoured to dedicate the Kartarpur Corridor to the nation at the holy site of Dera Baba Nanak."
He said the inauguration on the occasion of 550th Guru Nanak Jayanti was a blissful blessing, which would ease the travel to Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan.
The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC), the Punjab Government and also to those, who built the corridor in a record time frame to facilitate the movement of pilgrims across the border.
The Prime Minister also expressed gratitude to his Pakistan counterpart Imran Khan and all those on the other side of the border, who made this possible.
He described Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji as an inspiration not only to India, but also to the whole world.
Describing Kartarpur as a holy place filled with the divine aura of Guru Nanak, Modi said this corridor would help thousands of devotees and pilgrims.
He said train and air connectivity was being strengthened and a special flight had begun offering its services between Amritsar and Nanded.
Similarly, during the Air India flight from Amritsar to London, 'Ek Omkar message' was being played. (UNI)
