New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal bid farewell to a group of senior citizens embarking on a spiritual journey to Gujarat’s Dwarakadheesh as part of the Mukhyamantri Teerth Yatra Yojana. During the interaction, Kejriwal emphasized the potency of elders’ blessings over political affiliations, asserting, “Your blessings are more powerful than those big parties.” He highlighted the initiatives undertaken by the Delhi government, such as free medical check-ups and education, expressing gratitude for the reciprocated blessings.
“I hope you enjoy your trip,” Kejriwal conveyed to the departing passengers, revealing that 82 trains had already facilitated around 80,000 individuals on pilgrimage. Recognizing the predominantly female participants, Kejriwal acknowledged the scheme’s significance for women who often dedicate their lives to family responsibilities without many opportunities for personal travel.
“From Monday, this Teerth Yatra Yojana will be started in Punjab as well,” announced Kejriwal, mentioning his upcoming visit to interact with passengers bound for Nanded. The Chief Minister shared insights into the scheme’s expansion and its positive impact on individuals’ lives.
During the heartfelt send-off, Kejriwal engaged with senior citizens, capturing moments with selfies. Delhi Minister Atishi accompanied him, underlining the government’s commitment to fostering meaningful connections with the citizens. As the Mukhyamantri Teerth Yatra Yojana unfolds in Punjab, the initiative continues to provide spiritual journeys for residents, reflecting a blend of governance and personal touch.
