Dera Baba Nanak, November 24

Notwithstanding the Covid-19 pandemic, the concluding ceremony of the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev may turn out to be a high-voltage affair with Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh sending invitations to former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and many other dignitaries for the event to be held here on November 30.

Cabinet Minister and local MLA Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa confirmed that apart from Dr Manmohan Singh, the Chief Minister had invited state Governor VP Singh Badnore, his Haryana counterpart Satyadev Narayan Arya, former AICC president Rahul Gandhi, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs, besides all MLAs.

Randhawa presided over a meeting here today to oversee the preparations.

The Chief Minister will be presiding over in as many as five functions in one day. He will begin his tour by having a view of the Kartarpur Sahib shrine located in Pakistan through binoculars from the Darshan Sthall near the Integrated Check Post.

Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Ishfaq maintained that Covid safety guidelines, including sanitisation of the venues, were being followed.
