Today, the Pakistan deputy high commissioner was summoned by India conveying objection over the presence of Khalistani separatists in the panel set up by his country on Kartarpur, sources said. To talk over the modalities of opening the Kartarpur Corridor, the external affairs ministry rescheduled the meeting on April 2 between India and Pakistan.
In the statement, it was said, “It has been conveyed that the next meeting on the modalities can be scheduled at an appropriate time after receiving Pakistan’s response.”
India has questioned over the intention of Pakistan claiming that the presence of people like Maninder Singh Tara, a Khalistani leader, and Gopal Singh Chawla may cause “disharmony” because they are close to Laskar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed.
After India has rescheduled the meeting of April 2, the Pakistan Foreign Office said it “regrets the Indian decision” to reschedule the meeting. The foreign office ministry tweeted, “Last minute postponement without seeking views from Pakistan and especially after the productive technical meeting on March 19 is incomprehensible.”
“The Indian government remains committed to realizing the long-pending demand of the Indian pilgrims to visit Kartarpur Sahib, using the corridor in a safe, secure, smooth and easy manner,” the statement said.
India had requested Pakistan to allow 5000 pilgrims per day and 10,000- plus on special days but Pakistan agreed to only 500 -700 pilgrims per day.
