In this article, we are going to talk about Indianness which is the community that stays central to India. It has been said that no Indian can imagine this country without Punjab, Punjabis, and Sikhs. To know about this topic we have to go back to the year 2006. They were aboard a plane that was carrying the then PM Manmohan Singh and an Indian delegation to Tokyo. At the time of the fight the PN media advisor, Sanjay Baru came up with the gallery and unexpectedly told him that Prime Minister was currently waiting for him and he told Baru before they board the flight at the airport of New Delhi which he wanted to meet the PM.
He was led to the meeting room aboard this Air India special aircraft. Two of the five chairs were already occupied. And Singhw was seated on the chair in the center. The Punjabi publication was sitting on another side. They were talking with each other in Hindi and Punjabi. He did not mean to ask the Prime Minister any questions. There is a process of assembly elections that is underway in Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh. There was a report in the newspapers there was stated that electoral rallies are being planned for the practical Congress politicians who are in the matter but the PM was not on the list.
At that time he said to Baru that he must visit in dominant read of Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttrakhand. Palia in Rudrapur and UP in Uttrakhand have a large Sikh community. He should also spend one night in Amritsar and he offered some prayers at the Golden Temple. This might calm Sikhs but also it will take the wind out of the sails of separatists. Till then Manmohan Singh has already made some trips to Harmandir Sahib just before as PM. Singh became contemplative by the moment he finished and the room fell into silence which was awkward and he took a leave of the PM quickly.
The Sikh tour was a big thing in the past but it is mostly important to gain some insights into the position and also the attitude of the Current PM of India Narendra Modi on attempting separatism. As we all have seen in the last nine years the PM has always paid respect to the country’s gurdwara and he has also highlighted the bravery and service of the Sikhs.
