SGPC is set to commemorate the 400th Prakash Purab of the ninth Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib, on a large scale. SGPC has now announced efforts to establish connections with all prominent Sikh organizations across Punjab and neighboring states in order to collect feedback and ensure the celebrations can be held at a grand scale.
In a series of meetings to be held across Punjab, the SGPC has announced that it will meet with leaders of prominent Sikh organizations from Majha and Doaba areas on March 11 at the SGPC headquarters. Another meeting will be held with the Malwa region leaders on March 13 at Gurdwara Sri Dukh Niwaran Sahib.
“We are ensuring participation from all Sikh organizations. Hence, our plan is to meet with various organizations from the districts of Majha and Doaba, namely Amritsar, Tarn Taran, Gurdaspur, Pathankot, Kapurthala, Hoshiarpur, Nawanshahr, and Jalandhar districts. Another meeting will be held with those belonging to the Malwa, which include the regions Patiala, Ludhiana, Sri Fatehgarh Sahib, Ferozepur, Faridkot, Sri Muktsar Sahib, Bathinda, Moga, Sangrur, Mansa, Ropar, Barnala, Fazilka, Mohali.
