The government will observe the event as a non-political and bi-partisan affair, he said, appealing to all people to shed their political and other differences to come together to observe this event.
Today, considerations of caste, creed, inequality are again rampant in our society, he lamented, adding that “We need to rise above these on the path shown by Guru Sahib.” If Punjab has to regain its number one position in the country, we need to maintain bhai-chara and saanjh and not get divided on different lines, asserted the Chief Minister.

Recalling the various submissions made by his government to the Prime Minister for supporting the state’s initiative for the special events, the Chief Minister thanked Narendra Modi, and the Government of India, for acceding to the requests of the State Government on behalf of the people of Punjab and Punjabis living across the world.
Captain Amarinder also congratulated all Punjabis on the Centre’s decision to develop the Kartarpur corridor, saying a long pending demand of Punjab was on the verge of fulfilment on November 26, when he would join the President of India to lay the foundation stone for the corridor. He also thanked the Government of Pakistan for reciprocating on the issue and said his government will also contribute, as may be required, to ensure timely completion of the project.
The Chief Minister said money would be no constraint for the various development and welfare projects launched/announced by him today, to ensure befitting commemoration of the historic celebrations.


Addressing the gathering, Dr. Manmohan Singh expressed gratitude to Captain Amarinder and his government for giving him the opportunity to be part of this special moment. He expressed the hope that all would rise above the petty considerations of communalism and hatred to celebrate the event in a befitting manner.
The former prime minister cautioned people against attempts by communal forces to divide the nation, and exhorted them to participate in the year-long celebration with full enthusiasm and gaiety, regardless of caste, colour, creed and religion.
Governor Badnore said it was a matter of pride for him to be part of the auspicious occasion. He called for universal brotherhood as the key message of the commemorative events.
