PM Modi said that the coin is a just small attempt to pay tribute to Guru Gobind Singh. He said that Guru Gobind Singh was not only a great warrior but an erudite poet too who fought vehemently against the injustice meted out to people in the country.

He said that our country too is treading the path of Guru Gobind Singh and taking to world our knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda, to renovate our civilization.

Speaking on the steps undertaken by the government to open the Kartarpur Corridor, PM Modi said that his government is helping Indians and Sikhs, to visit the shrine of Guru Nanak Dev in Pakistan, that too visa-free. Stating that opening of the Kartarpur Corridor is the government’s attempt to redeem the country from the horrors of 1947 India-Pakistan partition, he added, “August 1947 mein jo chuk hui thi, yeh uska prayaschit hai. Humare guru ka sabse mehatvapurn sthal sirf kuch hi kilometer dur tha lekin use bhi apne saath nahi liya gaya. Yeh corridor uss nuksaan ko kum karne ka pramanik pramaan hai.”
