This was the first time that the Sikh community of Sector 137 carried out the celebration and every member was given a role to take care of. The residents also conducted a cleaning drive, where both old and young were seen sweeping the roads.
The cleaniness drive was intiated by Dr Jasbir Kaur and Dr Amit Kaur Puri, residents of Supertech Ecociti in sector 137.
Talking to CitySpidey, Jasbir said that during the Nagar Kirtan a team of volunteers were responsible to see that no waste was littered on the roads, as tea and coffee was being served to the large gathering during the procession.
