The yatrees were accepted by ETPB board members, Pardhan Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee Sardar Ameer Singh, and former Pardhan Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee Sardar Satwant Singh, and Deputy Secretary Shrines Imran Gondal.

At the time, Deputy Secretary Shrines Imran Gondal stated that all arrangements, including housing and security, had been made in order to enable the yatrees on the orders of the Chairman of the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB), Habib-ur-Rehman Gilani.

He stated that provisions had been made for the Sikh yatrees to have access to filtered cold water, spotless restrooms, and pleasant seating areas among other things.

He added that ETPB had also signed a cooperation agreement with the Walled City of Lahore Leadership for the sustainability of the Haveli Bhuman Shah Dipalpur, Haveli Maharaja Ranjeet Singh Gujranwala, Haveli Bakhshi Ram Gujar Khan, and Gurdwara Bhai Karam Singh Jehlum.

He claimed that a plan to restore Sikh heritage was being developed. According to Pardhan Sardar Ameer Singh of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, the ETPB and the Pakistani government made special preparations for the yatrees travel, lodging, and security.

Sikh leader Gurmeet Singh gave a speech on the occasion and stated that Sikh pilgrims had come to Pakistan with a sense of love, peace, brotherhood, and harmony.

He expressed appreciation to the Pakistani authorities for issuing visas to the Sikh pilgrims. He extended his gratitude to the local government and Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee for making their visit possible.

He insisted, “We come here with a symbol of tolerance and fraternity because Pakistan is dear to us and we love it.

The Sikh yatrees would travel to Gurdwara Dera Sahib in Lahore, Gurdwara Panja Sahib in Hassanabdal, and Sacha Sauda in Nankana Sahib throughout their stay from June 21 to June 30. On June 29, Gurdwara Dera will host the primary event in this respect.
