Yogi Adityanath visits Gurudwara on Baisakhi

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath paid a visit to Yahiyaganj Gurudwara in Lucknow on the occasion of Baisakhi on Thursday. The Chief Minister remembered the sacrifices laid by Guru Gobind Singh and called on the people of all religions to pledge and abolish ‘untouchability’ from the society. Today, India is celebrating Baisakhi, the festival that marks the foundation of Khalsa Panth.

During his 45-minute stay at the Gurudwara, Mr Adityanath, who was accompanied by local BJP MLA and UP Law Minister Brajesh Pathak, said he has great respect for the Sikh gurus as they have ended the disparity and untouchability.

He also remembered that he had visited Patna Sahib when he went to Patna for the first time. “Youths in the country should adopt the ideology shown by the Sikh Gurus and should protect the country as well as the religion,” he added. Mr Adityanath said a religious Guru should not be involved in any controversy. Earlier, the Chief Minister was welcomed by the Sikh community and it presented him a sword.
