During Punjab visit, Rahul Gandhi offered prayers at Takht Damdama Sahib …..
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi pays obeisance at Sikh shrine Takht Damdama Sahib at Talwandi Sabo near here today. The Takht Sri Darbar Sahib Damdama Sahib, one amongst the five seats of temporal authority of Sikhism, is the place where Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru, prepared the full version of the Sikh scriptures called Sri Guru Granth Sahib in 1705. Rahul is presently on a two-day visit to the state and yesterday he met the families of two Sikhs in Faridkot, who died in the police firing in a protest against the incident of sacrilege last month. A Congress leader said that the Vice President is planning to meet the family of a farmer who had recently committed suicide in Bhukianwala. He will take a foot walk from Bhukianwala to village Mallwala and interact with the village folks. Paddy procurement is under process in Punjab. Besides, Bathinda is the cotton belt of the state and farmers had suffered large losses due to the whitefly attack on the crops. Rahul’s visit to state seems to have given a shot in the arm to the party with top leaders Amarinder Singh and Partap Singh Bajwa putting a united show.The Gandhi scion will hear to the grievances of farmers during the day, a party leader said. Rahul slammed the Parkash Singh Badal government for finding no solution to problems of farmers.
