Chandigarh, Nov 22 (UNI) Prime minister Narendra Modi will grace the Gurbani rendition from Shri Guru granth Sahib ji Maharaj at a religious congregation at SAD President Sardar Sukhbir Singh Badal’s residence on Friday evening to mark the Parkash Utsav of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji .
Talking to mediapersons, SAD spokesperson Harcharan Bains said, ” Prime Minister Narendra Modi will spend the evening of the Parkash Utsav of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji tomorrow by listening to the sacred and divine Gurbani from Shri Guru granth Sahib.”
“This will be Prime Minister Modi’s first public appearance at a religious congregation-cum-Kirtan Darbar as part of the on-going celebrations of the 550th Parkash Utsav of Shri Guru Nanak Devji”, he said.
The PM’s visit comes in the wake of landmark decisions of the NDA government later in the noon on Thursday in which the government announced, among other things, its decision to build a state of-the-art corridor on the Indian side of the border as a precursor to the possible access to the historic shrine of the first Guru of the Sikhs in Kartarpur Sahib, just across the international border in Pakistan.
Mr Bains said, ” the Prime Minister had expressed a desire to devote an evening to spiritual upliftment in the company of the Sikh Sangat by listening to the rendition of the divine and holy Gurbani by exponents Gurbani music in classical ragas.”
Religious services and holy Kirtan of Gurbani are a regular feature on every sacred occasion of the Parkash Utsavs and other historic and sacred Sikh Gurpurabs.
