Islamabad: Soon after Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj declined the invitation of Pakistan to attend ceremony of Kartarpur border, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh too has declined invitation.
Pakistan’s decision to open Kartarpur border was globally appreciated by many but Indians once again showed their hostile and arrogant behaviour when the rejected the invitation from Pakistan to attend ceremony at Kartarpur corridor on November 28.
Amarinder Singh gave a weird excuse that the tension between two countries shall be eased before I attend the ceremony.
“Always cherished dream to visit Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib. Regret to decline invite of Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi for Kartarpur Sahib Corridor ceremony,” he said.
He also expressed that Prime Minister Imran Khan creates peaceful relations between the two countries.
When the Kartarpur border decision was taken for the goodwill and ease of Sikh pilgrims, everyone endorsed it.
Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi invited India’s Sushma Swaraj, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, and former cricketer and Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu to take take part in groundbreaking of the Kartarpur corridor.
Sushma Swaraj thanked FM Qureshi and excused that she wont make it to that because of the scheduled date.
She told that Indian side will be represented by her two fellows. Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Union Cabinet Minister of Food Processing and Hardeep Singh Puri, minister of State for Housing & Urban Affairs
