The statement added that the project will become a major religious hub for the Sikh community, and will boost the local economy, earn foreign exchange for Pakistan and create jobs in different sectors including hospitality and religious tourism.

'Earlier Monks from Korea visited Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa for their religious rituals and now Sikhs will visit Kartarpur for their religious rituals.'

Earlier, India had announced that PM Narendra Modi will inaugurate the project on their side on November 8, 2019.
