On the birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth guru of sikhs, PM Narendra Modi issued a commemorative coin in the memory of the tenth Guru.

He targeted the Congress party and having Manmohan Singh in the audience, PM Modi said that the Sikh gurus "taught us to be on the side of justice" and following the path shown by them, the central government is "trying to get justice for the people who suffered during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots." 

Raising the issue of Kartarpur Corridor during his speech today, PM Modi, said that followers of Guru Nanak ji now won't have to look through a telescope fordarshan (view) of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, a revered Sikh shrine, where Guru Nanak Dev spent 18 years of his life.

Claiming that the 1947 mistake has been rectified, PM Modi said that the most significant Sikh shrine was "just a few kilometres away but even then it was ignored," and as an act of "atonement", the central government is helping build the road link to Kartarpur.
