The Delhi Cabinet on Friday took an in-principle decision to offer free pilgrimage to Nankana Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan’s Kartarpur under its flagship ‘Mukhyamantri Tirath Yatra Yojana’.

The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The government will bear all the expenses of pilgrimage to Kartarpur, Mr. Kejriwal said. Under its fully-funded scheme launched in July, the AAP government is currently sending senior citizens on pilgrimage to 12 destinations.
