All Clearances Obtained For Delhi-Nankana Sahib ‘Nagar Kirtan’: DSGMC

Darpan News Desk IANS, 09 Oct, 2019
  • All Clearances Obtained For Delhi-Nankana Sahib ‘Nagar Kirtan’: DSGMC

The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) on Wednesday said it has obtained all the necessary clearances to take out the grand ‘Nagar Kirtan’ which is scheduled to start from the city and culminate at Nankana Sahib in Pakistan.


The DSGMC, however, said some elements are discrediting them by spreading misinformation.


The ‘Nagar Kirtan’ procession marking the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev will commence from Bangla Sahib Gurdwara here on October 13 and culminate at Nankana Sahib in Pakistan.


“We have received all clearances from Home, External Affairs ministries, Customs and RBI regarding the Nagar Kirtan. Only visas are awaited. Yet some people are discrediting the DSGMC through misinformation,” DSGMC secretary Harmeet Singh Kalka told reporters.


Kalka claimed that he was informed by the Pakistan High Commission that visa applications of 478 participants were sent for clearance to Islamabad.


He said a video was released by some Sikh leaders from Pakistan saying DSGMC has no right to take out the ‘Nagar Kirtan’.


Another outfit Siromani Akali Dal Delhi (Sarna) has also planned to take out a ‘Nagar Kirtan’ from Nanak Piao Gurdwara here to Nankana Sahib on October 28.


The highest seat of Sikh religion Akal Takht has formed a five-member committee comprising representatives from both organisations to ensure that one ‘Nagar Kirtan’ is organised to mark Guru Nank Dev’s 550th birth anniversary.


Kalka added that the DSGMC is waiting for a final word from Akal Takht over the issue.
