Jalandhar, Dec 18: Kartarpur(Ravi) Darshan Abhilakhi Sanstha chief Kuldip Singh Wadala has again sought intervention of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to persuad Pakistan to create a 'free corridor' for Sikh pilgrims to holy shrine of Kartarpur on the banks of the Ravi river where Guru Nanak breathed his last.

Talking to reporters here today, Mr Wadala, a former Akali legislator, said that he was trying to seek an audience with the Prime Minister during his visit to Punjab tomorrow.

He said that he had been pressing for this demand and had written to all concerned including the Prime Minister, External Affairs Minister and Punjab Chief Minister.

Mr Wadala said that he had also met Dr Singh during his last Punjab visit in March this year and raised the issue. The Pakistan Government had already expressed its readiness for providing the corridor, he claimed.
