| Monday | 21st October, 2019
The rally was dedicated to the 550th Parkash Purb of Guru Nanak Dev.
It was flagged off by Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma, local MLAs, Police Commissioner Gurpreet Singh Bhullar and others from Guru Nanak Mission Chowk here.
It passed through Guru Amar Das Chowk, Manbro Chowk, Guru Ravi Das Chowk, Lambra, Nakodar bypass, Malsia, Dalla and concluded at Sultanpur Lodhi where the first Guru of Sikhs, Guru Nanak Dev, had attained enlightenment 550 years ago.
The aim of the rally was to make people aware of ill-effects of drugs, health consciousness, pollution, stubble burning, and social responsibilities such as education of girl child.
Holding placards to spread the message of Guru Nanak’s teachings and messages of women empowerment, environment, pollution and health, people cycled to Sultanpur Lodhi, a 62-km stretch.
