CM’s offerings in Pak

Chandigarh, November 10

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh scripted history in more ways than one when he led the first jatha to pay obeisance at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib at Kartarpur on Saturday.

He presented four “rumalas” and one “chaur sahib” at the historic gurdwara. One of the “rumalas” was given to him by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the presence of Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh on Saturday to be offered at Kartarpur Sahib.

The Chief Minister handed over the “rumala” to the head granthi, seeking Guru Nanak Dev’s blessings for every citizen of India. Capt Amarinder later said he was honoured to have been chosen to make the offerings on the auspicious occasion of the 550th Parkash Purb of the first Sikh Guru.

The CM offered two “rumalas” and the “chaur sahib” on behalf of the people of Punjab.

A government spokesperson said the CM, joined by party MLAs Harpartap Ajnala and Kuljit Nagra, offered a “rumala” on behalf of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and the entire rank and file of the party. — TNS
