In November 2018, India and Pakistan had agreed to set up the border crossing linking Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, the final resting place of Sikh faith founder Guru Nanak, to Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district.
There was a slip of tongue by the BJP MP from Gurdaspur when he said 'withhold the sovereignty and integrity of the country' instead of 'uphold the sovereignty and integrity of the country', but he quickly rectified it.
Dharmendra, who arrived in Gurdaspur Friday to campaign for his son Sunny Deol for Lok Sabha elections, told reporters that he has come here to understand people's pain and to become the remedy
This is the first meeting that is being held after India had on August 5 revoked Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and bifurcated the state into Union Territories.
The 59-year-old BJP MP Sunny Deol visited the Kartarpur corridor site for the first time after winning the Lok Sabha polls.
Sunny Deol is expected to contest from Punjab’s Gurdaspur.
In a letter issued on the letterhead of the Gurdaspur MP, Sunny Deol appointed Gurpreet Singh Palheri as his 'representative' to 'attend meetings and follow important matters'.
He said the Congress in Punjab, too, had made big promises to farmers, but deceived them after coming to power.
