"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.
After the event, a row broke out following Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi's remarks that Khan, a former cricketer, bowled a "googly", forcing India to send two ministers to the groundbreaking ceremony of the corridor in Pakistan.
The Pakistan PM distanced himself from the remarks by his foreign minister.
