The "Shukrana Yatra" (thanks giving march) sponsored by the ad hoc Haryana Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (HSGPC) was started from Dabwali town of the district on Sunday and was accorded a welcome from all sections of society especially from the devout Sikhs from wherever it passed on its way to Gurudwara Chormar Sahib.

Jagdish Singh Jhinda, the president of the HSGPC, while talking to reporters said that the 35-day march after traversing
thorough all the district of the state would culminate and conclude at the Gurudwara Nadha Sahib (Panchkula) on March 06.

He said that the aim of the 'Yatra' was to make the Sikhs aware about the glorious Sikh tenets and to ensure that they observe the Sikh 'Maryada' (principles) in letter and spirit.

He said that besides the Yatra would enthuse and exhort the Sikh youth who are showing wayward behaviour to abstain and refrain from the use of Drugs which was ruining their own future.
