Chandigarh:

In a last-ditch effort to ensure joint celebrations of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, chief minister Amarinder Singh has deputed three cabinet ministers — Charanjit Singh Channi, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa and Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa — to meet Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpeet Singh in Amritsar on Tuesday.


“We will also hand over a letter from the chief minister to the jathedar. We hope that Akal Takht will intervene in the matter. From the outset, the Congress government has been keeping the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) informed about the preparations. However, they still decided to plan a separate event in Sultanpur Lodhi,” Channi told TOI.
