Amritsar: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash
Singh Badal along with Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh
Badal and all his cabinet colleagues on Friday visited religious
shrines here, including Sri Harimandir Sahib (Golden Temple).

Badal and his cabinet colleagues paid obeisance at the Sri
Harimandir Sahib, Durgiana Temple and historic Ram Tirath to
thank almighty for blessing them with a victory in the
recently concluded assembly elections.

Offering prayers at the Sri Harimandir Sahib complex, the
Punjab cabinet sought blessings for strength to serve the
people of the state with all humility and dedication.

The Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues also partook
Langar (food from community kitchen) at Sri Harimandir
Sahib.

Later, the Cabinet paid obeisance at the Shri Akal Takht
Sahib and then went to Durgiana temple as well as historic Ram
Tirath, an official spokesman said.

Badal said the cabinet had come to these religious shrines
to express its gratitude as the SAD-BJP alliance "has by God’s
grace staged a historic comeback in Punjab".

He reiterated his firm commitment to ensure overall
development, peace and communal harmony in the state besides
cherishing the aspirations of all sections of society.

Badal said that the SAD-BJP alliance government would be
ever indebted to the people of Punjab for reposing unflinching
faith in the policies and programmes of the government.

He said a meeting of the cabinet would be convened soon to
fix the priority of its development agenda and subsequently
chalk out a time-bound strategy to ensure its implementation
in right earnest.

Badal and his Cabinet colleagues also visited the historic
Jallianwala Bagh to pay tribute to the martyrs who laid down
their life during the freedom struggle.
