Ludhiana, February 26, 2013: In a statement here on Tuesday, Jeet Mohinder Sidhu, MLA from Talwandi Sabo (Bathinda), has thanked the Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal for the proposal to link Rama Mandi with Maur Mandi via Talwandi Sabo.
He termed it was a historic decision for the people of Punjab as it will be for the first time that Takht Damdama Sahib at Talwandi Sabo will be linked with the other four Takhts of the Sikh religion located in various parts of the country.
People of Punjab in general and Talwandi Sabo in particular thanked the railway minister and feel proud of him for his decision to link the historically and religiously important place like Talwandi Sabo (Damdama Sahib) with all the four Takhts, he said.
He added after the rail link is completed all the five Takhts will directly be interlinked through the rail line and this will also pave the way for running special pilgrimage trains connecting these Takhts.
“This rail link will give a much needed boost to the economy and prosperity of the region and Talwandi Sabo in particular”, he said.
Adding, he said, “I being the representative of the people of Talwandi Sabo express my sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the Railway Minister for this historic decision.”
