PM Justin Trudeau visited Sri Darbar Sahib and was very warmly greeted. Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri received him at the airport.
As Justin Trudeau entered the complex cries of “Bolay So Nihaal, Sat Sri Akal,” translates to “Whosoever speaks is enlightened, God is timeless.”
Thousands of Sikhs around the complex responded to the Jaikara and the excitement to see the Canadian PM can be felt with the wonderful atmosphere.
Justin Trudeau and his family toured around Sri Darbar Sahib and took in the spirituality. He also did sewa at the Guru Ram Das Sahib Langar hall. Justin Trudeau stated that he would work with India and particularly with Punjab in the future. He was delighted to see the tremendous hospitality of the Sikhs and with hands folded thanked the people around the parikarma of Sri Harmandir Sahib.
Punjabis welcome the Canadian PM with open arms and went over and above in the grand welcome. People lined up the road from the airport to the Sri Amritsar Sahib and held signs along the whole way to welcome the PM to the state.
He was presented with custom made gifts of a kirpan and a replica model of Sri Darbar Sahib.
