Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday claimed that he was photographed "thousands of times" during his visit in Pakistan and asserted that does not know who pro-Khalistani leader Gopal Chawla is.
On being asked about his photograph with Pro-Khalistani leader Gopal Singh Chawla, Sidhu said, "There was so much love in Pakistan that every day probably 10,000 pictures were being taken of me alone and with several people there (in Pakistan), I don't know who Gopal Chawla is."
The foundation stone of the route was laid down by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khanon on Wednesday. The Kartarpur corridor along the India-Pakistan border is three kilometres away from Gurdaspur in Punjab. Once opened, it would allow Sikh pilgrims a direct access to the historic Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, Pakistan, where Guru Nanak Dev died in 1539.
