Evecuee Trust Property Board says that some Indian media persons have tried to misguide on the establishment of Project management Unit for Kartarpur Corridor Project. In a press release issued by ETPB, the management said
that they either don’t know the spirit of PMU or their propaganda is aimed to malign Kartarpur Project and Pakistan. Spokes person of ETPB said the Kartarpur is a true example of Sikh Muslim friendship as well as interfaith harmony as explained by the UN Gen Secy. ETPB is the custodian of all Sikh Shrines in Pakistan and PSGPC is an official body to carry out the rituals in Gurdwaras Sahiban including Gurdwara Darbar Sahib as per Sikh Rehat Maryada. Whereas PMU has been established to look after the day to day running of affairs ie management, accounts etc and coordinate the efforts of all stakeholders. Government of Pakistan has spent Rs 17 billion on phase 1 of Kartarpur Corridor Project so far. About 875 acres land has been acquired for Gurdwara Darbar Sahib. Phase 2 has yet to be initiated soon. Therefore such propaganda is tantamount to malign the project and Sikh community may refute such tactics.
