Posted on November 30th, 2016 in Local News

Keith has tabled an EDM on the Nagar Kirtan processions in Leicester during the weekend of the 26-27th November. It read:

That this House congratulates the Sikh community on the Nagar Kirtan processions which took place across the UK on 27 November 2016 to mark the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of the Sikh faith; celebrates the contribution of the Sikh community to the UK, and the cultural contribution made by community events like the Nagar Kirtan procession to the UK’s multicultural, tolerant society; and notes that a procession has been held in Leicester city centre every year since 1992 which attracts thousands of Sikhs from across the Midlands.
