Prime Minister Narendra Modi said two major events in India on Saturday - the opening of Kartarpur corridor and Supreme Court's landmark verdict in Ayodhya dispute - were akin to fall of the Berlin Wall which took place exactly 30 years ago.
Addressing the nation after the Supreme Court judgment that ruled disputed Ayodhya land in Hindu's favour, Modi said, "Today is the 9th of November. It was on this date that the Berlin Wall collapsed. Two different streams of thought came together and took a new pledge."
Drawing a comparison with today's events in India, he added, "Today, on 9th November, the Kartarpur corridor has begun. India and Pakistan made a coordinated effort for this corridor. Today the 9th November the judgment of the SC is giving us a message of staying united and getting together and living together."
