PM Modi asks Cong to explain its failures in opening Kartarpur corridor for last seventy years

New Delhi/Nov,4: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday hit out at Congress for failing to link India with Kartarpur in Pakistan for last seventy years and sought explanation from Congress party on this count.

Addressing an election rally here ahead of the elections in the state on December 7, he said Kartarpur went to Pakistan due to the lack of vision and sensitivity of then Congress leaders.

The foundation stone for the much-awaited corridor linking Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan’s Kartarpur – the final resting place of Sikh faith’s founder Guru Nanak Dev – to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India’s Gurdaspur district was laid last week.

According to Modi, Kartarpur is in Pakistan today because then Congress leaders had no idea about the importance of Guru Nanak Dev and had no respect for Sikh sentiments.

“The credit of the Kartarpur corridor goes to your vote. Correcting Congress mistakes was my destiny,” he said at the rally.

The headlines five years ago were about corruption and scams, the prime minister said. “Have you seen any news of this kind in the last five years,” he asked.

Focussing on farmers and their problems, he said his government wants to make farmers “energy givers” and asked them to install solar panels, use drip irrigation and other modern methods of farming.

“The naamdar does not know the difference between red and green chillies,” he said, hitting out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who he has often referred to as “naamdar” (dynast).

“If you tell him that farmers are getting high prices for red chilli as compared to green chilli, he’ll say farmers should grown red chillies,” he said, alleging that the Congress was responsible for the pain of farmers.
