Devotees participate in the shobha yatra taken out on the eve of Guru Ravidas Jayanti in Jalandhar.
On the eve of Guru Ravidas Jayanti, a shobha yatra was taken out in the city on Friday afternoon. It was attended by a large number of devotees and several political leaders from the city and outside.
The procession, which started from Guru Ravidas Dham in Bootan Mandi, passed through various parts of the city, including Nakodar Chowk, Valmiki Chowk, Mahavir Marg and Ram Chowk. Shabad Bani composed by Guru Ravidas was played using DJ systems all through the journey.
Leader of Opposition and Aam Aadmi Party leader Harpal Cheema said Guru Ravidas had raised his voice to uplift the downtrodden. He said there was need for raising voice against the oppression of the downtrodden.
Member of Parliament Santokh Singh Chaudhary also attended a function held at Sri Guru Ravidass Senior Secondary School.
Addressing a gathering, he said it was the ideas and principles of Guru Ravidas on which the Constitution, drafted by Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, is founded. “It is Guru Ravidas’ thoughts on equality and welfare that can guide us in realising the dream of an ideal society,” said the MP.
Later, accompanied by Sant Nirmal Dass Jaure Wale, Sant Nirmal Dass Abadan Wale, MLA Rajinder Beri, Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori and Police Commissioner Gurpreet Singh Bhullar, he led the nagar kirtan.
Phagwara: The shobha yatra at Phagwara also received a very huge response. It had a special attraction this time — a tableau by farmers which depicted the use of farm animals in the fields. Residents of the city said they saw this trend for the first time as never before had members of the Ravidasia community bothered about the interests of the zamindars.
Activists of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Doaba) led by Satnam Singh Sahni, general secretary, also organised a langar of kinnows and mineral water bottles at the site. The youngsters present at the stall said, “The Ravidassia community had stood with us during our protests. They had participated in large numbers in our agitations at Delhi borders and in our tractor rallies taken out in the city. So definitely, it was time for us to reciprocate with our gesture.”
