India to take up with Pakistan pro-Khalistan leader’s presence on Kartarpur panel


India is going “with high expectations” for the Kartarpur corridor meeting on Sunday and is expected to raise with the Pakistani side several issues, including the presence of pro-Khalistani leader Gopal Singh Chawla on a panel associated with the project.

The first round of talks was held on March 14 on the Indian side of the Attari-Wagah border and the second round is scheduled for July 14 (Sunday) at Wagah, on the Pakistani side. The second round of talks was originally scheduled on April 2 but India raised objections to pro-Khalistani leader Chawla being linked to the Kartarpur project.

According to sources, India is well on its way to completing the project by October 31. It will be thrown open to pilgrims in November to mark the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism. Read more
