Chandigarh, January 13, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to constitute a national level committee to oversee the year-long 400th Prakash Purb celebrations of Ninth Sikh Guru Teg Bahadur ji, on the lines of the 550th Prakash Purb Celebrations of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Captain Amarinder Singh pointed out that the state Government planned to celebrate the historic occasion in a befitting manner with a series of programmes through the year, beginning April 2020.

The Chief Minister apprised Modi that Punjab Government was already in the process of drawing up a detailed proposal for the commemoration of this mega event and the same would be shortly sent to the GoI.

Describing the 400th Prakash Purb of the Ninth Sikh Guru, scheduled to take place in April 2021, as a fortunate occasion for all, Captain Amarinder said that the Great Guru occupies a special place in the country’s history. He had sacrificed his life to uphold the principles of religious freedom and amity and was, therefore, rightfully called as ‘Hind di Chaadar’, he added.

It may be recalled that the State Government had already decided to commemorate the 400th birth anniversary of the Ninth Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Teg Bahadur ji, on April 18, 2021, with year-long celebrations beginning April 12 this year.
