Delhi Adds Kartarpur Sahib In CM’s Pilgrimage Scheme

New Delhi: Delhi’s Arvind Kejriwal Government on Friday announced it will take senior citizens of the national capital to Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan under its free pilgrimage scheme. The first group of worshippers will go to Kartarpur Sahib in a luxurious bus from Delhi on January 5 next year, according to the Delhi government.  The Delhi government has included Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh in its pilgrimage scheme before Kartarpur Sahib. On December 3, the first train under it would leave for Ayodhya, carrying 1,000 elderly pilgrims. The pilgrimage registration process has already begun.

Kejriwal announced the 'Mukhyamantri Tirth Yatra Yojana' in 2018, under which his government offers free pilgrimages to locations like Haridwar, Jagannath Puri, Mathura, Rameshwaram, Shirdi, Tirupati, and others.

Vailankanni Church in Tamil Nadu was recently added to Kejriwal's list of pilgrimage sites under the plan. Pilgrims are provided with free lodging, meals, and insurance as part of the programme. To qualify, the candidate must be at least 60 years old and have never received assistance previously. The programme does not apply to elderly persons who work for the federal, state, or local governments or autonomous entities. Aside from Delhi, the chief minister has made a similar pronouncement.
