Pakistan has not addressed the concerns raised by India over the Kartarpur corridor, the Government of India said on Thursday.
Briefing media in New Delhi, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India has sought clarification from Pakistan on certain issues but these concerns have not been addressed by Islamabad.
He stressed that India remains committed to realise the aspirations of people which flow out of pending demand of Indian pilgrims to visit Kartarpur Sahib using the corridor.
He added that New Delhi had also shared concerns on reports that controversial elements have been appointed by Pakistan to a committee which was to be associated with Kartarpur corridor.
He said this is the reason that India decided to postpone the meeting between the two countries, which had been scheduled for 2nd of April to discuss the Kartarpur Corridor.
India and Pakistan have agreed to build the Kartarpur Sahib corridor for Sikh pilgrims to visit the Gurdwara in Kartarpur, located in tehsil Shakargarh, Narowal District in Punjab.
India and Pakistan agreed to construct the corridor on their respective sides so that Sikh devotees could worship at Gurdwara Nankana Sahib during the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.
