Sukhbir Badal Tweets in Punjabi:

Guru Nanak Jayanti, also referred to as Gurpurab, turned special this year as the Pakistan government decided to fulfill a seven-decade-old pending demand of the community by opening a corridor which connects the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib shrine in Pakistan's Kartarpur with the Indian border. The Sikh pilgrims from India have been accorded visa-free access to Kartarpur, where Guru Nanak had spent the last 18 years of his life.
