Pakistan removes the pro-Khalistan leader from Kartarpur corridor committee ahead of Sunday meeting after India’s objection
Two days ahead of the second round of India-Pakistan meeting on Kartarpur Passage, Pakistan’s federal closet on Friday got rid of Gopal Singh Chawla, participant of Pakistan Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, from his post.
India and Pakistan are set up to meet momentarily time on Sunday to fix the pending concerns connected to the Kartarpur hallway. While India is building a bridge to aid pilgrims to cross the flood-prone Ravi creek near Baba Dera Nanak in Punjab, Pakistan authorities urge they can develop a causeway on their side as there isn’t enough time to develop a bridge.
“I have provided sacrifices for the Kartarpur task. I am appreciative to Pakistan PM Imran Khan that he is severe about opening up the corridor,” Chawla informed.
The second round of talks was initially scheduled on April 2, yet India had raised arguments to pro-Khalistani leader Chawla being linked to the Kartarpur job.
Chawla, a pro-Khalistan leader, had courted controversy on July 1 by sharing Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu’s changed picture sporting environment-friendly bandana with a celebrity and crescent on his Facebook page.
India had earlier raised arguments to pro-Khalistani leader Chawla being component of the Kartarpur task.
“The Federal Government (Federal Closet) has been pleased to re-constitute the Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC),” Pakistan stated in an official declaration on Friday, thereby dropping Chawla’s name from the panel.
The first round of discussions related to the Kartarpur Hallway held on March 14 on the Indian side of the Attari-Wagah border and also the second round is scheduled for July 14 at the Wagah the Pakistani side.
India and Pakistan are scheduled to meet momentarily time on July 14 to solve the pending problems connected to the Kartarpur corridor.
