“Let us together think about the wellness of the nation and do at least one good deed for the nation today which can provide peace to the departed souls,” added Kejriwal.

Prime Minister  Narendra Modi will also pay homage to bravehearts Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev at Hussainiwala in Punjab today.  He will also address a ‘Shridhanjali Samaroh’ at Hussainiwala in Ferozepur district during his visit.
