Pak should expeditiously fulfil promises made on Kartarpur project: India

NEW DELHI: India said on Thursday it expects Pakistan to implement its announcements relating to the Kartarpur corridor project “expeditiously”.

“Pakistan has to come true to the announcements they made…. It is important that they implement the announcements expeditiously,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar told reporters while replying to questions on the issue.

He also suggested that the protocol officer attached to Union Minister Hasimrat Kaur Badal during the ground-breaking ceremony of the corridor in Pakistan was not allowed to accompany her when she visited Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur.

There was a “problem” of access to the protocol officer, said Kumar, adding it helps to have a protocol officer in hand to assist the Minister. “That did not happen,” he said refusing to elaborate further.  (AGENCIES)
