Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses Gurpurab celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji at Gurudwara Lakhpat Sahib, Gujarat :
I am fortunate to seek blessings of Gurudrawa Lakhpat Sahib Ji today. Today reminds me of the time when this place was the epicenter of trade & business.
Gurdwara Lakhpat Sahib has been a witness to every movement of time. Today, as I connect with this holy place, I am reminded of how Lakhpat Sahib has seen storms in the past.
The storm of 1998 & the earthquake in 2001 had damaged this pious place of worship. But with the blessings of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, I was able to revive this place with the help of craftsmen who helped us in bringing back the glory of this place.
Guruvani was inscribed on the walls here with the ancient writing style. This project was also honoured by UNESCO then.
In 2019 we were able to successfully complete the work of Shri Kartarpur Sahib Ji corridor situated in Pakistan. This reflects our commitment towards preserving our culture & devotion towards Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
Efforts are made at every level for the message of Guru Nanak Dev Ji to reach the whole world with new energy.
