Punjab Chief Minister Meets Modi

Vastavam web: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and termed it a “courtesy meeting”. The chief minister said he had called on the prime minister since he had not met him so far during the latter’s second term. The meeting comes a day after India flagged its concerns to Pakistan during the second round of the talks on the Kartarpur corridor that took place between delegations of the two countries in Wagah on the Pakistani side of the border.

Though there were no official word on whether the Kartarpur issue was discussed during the meeting, it comes in the wake of Amarinder Singh urging the central government to work more closely with Pakistan government to conclude agreement on the Kartarpur Sahib corridor.
