New Delhi: A delegation of Gurudwara Bala Sahib visited Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his official residence on Monday.

They offered him ‘prasad’ and blessings and honoured the Prime Minister by tying a ‘Pagdi’ and offering him a ‘Siropa’.

The Gurudwara had organised an ‘Akhand paath’ between September 15 and 17 to commemorate the Prime Minister’s birthday.
