Chandigarh, December 4

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday virtually unveiled the logo of the state-level 400th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Teg Bahadur to be held now in a single phase in April-May 2021, on account of the pandemic, instead of the two-phased celebration proposed earlier.

Chairing a meeting of the executive committee for the celebrations, the Chief Minister suggested dedicating the year-long celebrations to the 'Hind Di Chaddar' as 'Sarv Dharam' year to mark the secular character of the nation.

It was tentatively decided at the virtual meeting that the main programme should commence on April 23, 2021, and culminate on May 1 in a grand event. A nagar kirtan will be held on April 23, starting from Guru Teg Bahadur birth place at Guru Ka Mahal in Amritsar and arriving at Baba Bakala to mark the launch of the event. Directing Tourism Minister Charanjit Singh Channi to prepare a proposal of works to be undertaken to commemorate the historic occasion, the CM said special developmental works should be undertaken in all 103 rural and urban areas of the state associated with Guru Teg Bahadur.

He suggested allocation of Rs 40-50 lakh for each of the 80 villages and Rs 1 crore for development of the 23 urban areas in this respect.
