Ellenabad (Haryana), Oct 19 (IANS) The distance between Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan and Guru Nanak’s followers is going to vanish, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday, the last day of campaigning in Haryana.
“The distance between Kartarpur Sahib and us (Guru Nanak’s followers) is going to end. This opportunity has come after seven decades of Independence,” he said at an election meeting here in Sirsa district.
“Seventy years passed. What can be more unfortunate than the fact that we had to use binoculars to have a glimpse of our centre of faith for seven decades,” he said.
“The new national highway built from Kapurthala to Govindwal Sahib near Tarn Taran will now be known as Guru Nanak Dev Ji Marg.”
“The BJP government is trying to make the whole world aware of this great moment, this historic moment of the 550th Prakash Parv of Guru Nanak Dev ji. This is why the government of India is going to celebrate the festival all over the world,” he said.
