‘Now please pay surprise visit to Singhu border”: How netizens reacted after PM Modi pays surprise visit to Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday stunned everyone by paying a surprise visit to Delhi’s Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib to pay tributes to Sikh Guru Teg Bahadur. His surprise visit came amidst raging protests by farmers against three Farm Laws passed by the central government. An overwhelming majority of these farmers are Sikhs from Punjab. However, many on Twitter urged PM Modi to now pleasantly surprise protesting farmers at the Delhi-Haryana border with an equally unscheduled visit.

Taking to Twitter, Modi shared a series of his photos from inside the gurudwara as he wrote, “This morning, I prayed at the historic Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, where the pious body of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji was cremated. I felt extremely blessed. I, like millions around the world, am deeply inspired by the kindnesses of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji.”

In another tweet, he wrote, “It is the special Kripa of the Guru Sahibs that we will mark the special occasion of the 400th Parkash Parv of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji during our Government’s tenure. Let us mark this blessed occasion in a historic way and celebrate the ideals of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji.”

While some appreciated the prime minister’s gesture, many urged him to visit the site of an extraordinary farmers’ revolution at the Delhi-Haryana border. Others shared gripping photos of farmers braving freezing cold in their protest against the controversial Farm Laws. One wrote, “If you have so much respect on Sikhs, then why you can’t find so time to talk with the agitating Sikh Farmers?” Another commented, “Modiji, visit kisaan andolan also! They are just 25 km away from your home. You can meet Gujarat farmers, can address kisaan sammelan in MP but can’t you farmers at your doorstep?”

Tens of thousands of farmers have been protesting at the Delhi-Haryana border demanding the withdrawal of three Farm Laws passed by the government. PM Modi has defended the laws saying this will help boost the incomes of farmers.
