Repealing farm laws, reopening Kartarpur Corridor bold initiatives: Rana
Jammu: Attributing the announcement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to repeal the three farm laws to his unflinching faith in democracy, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devender Singh Rana Sunday said that Modi had emerged as a democrat-statesman who keeps the nation first.
A statement of BJP issued here quoted Rana while addressing a Sangat at Gurdwara Yadgar at Bikram Chowk, Jammu in commemoration of the Gurupurab as saying that the nation was proud of the sagacious political stand taken by the PM in the interest of the nation and for satiating the urges of the farmers.
He also hailed the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor to enable a huge number of devotees to pay obeisance at the revered Gurdwara.
“It was only appropriate to reopen the corridor on the Prakash Parw of Guru Nanak Devji, an apostle of peace, harmony, social justice, and equality,” Rana said.
Lauding the valour of Sikhs, he said that their bravery and sacrifices towards the nation would always remain a source of inspiration for generations.
Rana said that the people of J&K had been sharing each others’ joys by being part of the festivals, which forge the spirit of brotherhood and camaraderie.
He expressed hope that this spirit of inclusiveness would flourish leaps and bounds for bringing harmony and tranquility to the society.
Rana said that all religions stand for love, amity, and selfless service but their teachings should not be allowed to fall silent in the din of hate and greed.
“To eschew these tendencies, there is an immense need of generating awareness about the unity in diversity as professed by all religions,” he said.
Rana said that the best way of celebrating festivals was to take a pledge to follow the path of righteousness in letter and spirit and work for building a society based on the natural principles of social justice, equality, compassion, love, and togetherness.
