Shwait Malik, BJP president, Punjab, accused chief minister of Punjab in India, Captain Amarinder Singh, who belongs to the political opponent party, of creating hurdles in Kartarpur Corridor project and charged the Congress party of anti Sikh stance. The central government in Delhi is headed by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party whereas the state government in Punjab is headed by the Congress party.
Similar tone was echoed when Union minister Vijay Sampla commented that Captain Amarinder Singh was confused on his stand on Kartarpur Corridor, charging the captain of double standards on claiming that the Kartarpur Corridor project is the brainchild of the Inter Service Intelligence of Pakistan and at the same time is in full swing to take credit for it.
Shwait Malik claimed that the congress first tried to oppose the Kartarpur Corridor and now that it is agreed upon, is trying to hijack the credit. He reiterated that if the Congress was sincere, Kartarpur Corridor could have been opened when Congress was in power, particularly during the ten years when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister for ten years.
Political blame game is on the tables from when Navjot Singh Sidhu of the Congress, who recently left the BJP on indifferences, went to the swearing ceremony of Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan, and the old friend promised him of the gift of Kartarpur Corridor to be opened on the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.
