Chandigarh: The Punjab Vidhan Sabha, on Monday unanimously passed a resolution to press the Central government to pursue with Pakistan the issue of opening of Kartarpur Sahib corridor during the 550th birthday celebrations of the first Sikh Guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

The resolution was moved by the chief minister Amrinder Singh on the second day of the monsoon session of the Assembly.

All members of the House, cutting across party lines, were unanimously of the view that the opening of the corridor would enable millions of Indian devotees to pay obeisance at the historic gurudwara.

The Sri Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara, where the first Sikh Guru spent the last years of his life, is located in Pakistan across the international border, though it is clearly visible from Dera Baba Nanak in district Gurdaspur.
