He stated that the delegation had reached Pakistan by bus after a long journey which lasts for a month-and-a-half. Reportedly, it took them 15 days to reach Europe from Canada and then another month to arrive in Pakistan.
Another Sikh pilgrim, Siljeet Singh, said Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar had fulfilled the promises made to the Sikh community.
