Amritsar, April 12

A meeting of the Sultan-ul-Quom Nawaab Jassa Singh Ahluwalia Memorial Society was held under the chairmanship of its state president Pardeep Singh Walia here today.

Members of the society expressed gratitude towards Mayor Karamjit Singh Rintu for initiating work of reconstruction of the Ahluwalia Gate at Ghee Mandi.

The foundation stone for the gate was laid in 2003 and a resolution for the same was passed unanimously by the Amritsar Municipal Corporation.

Walia said the British had demolished the Ahluwalia Gate in 1849 and to support the claim a trust had provided old maps and other materials to the civic body. On the basis of these documents, the MC has initiated the process of reconstruction.

The society also appreciated the efforts of Punjab Ahluwalia Trust chairman Charanjit Singh Walia for the reconstruction work.

The society also demanded that a statue of Jassa Singh Ahluwalia, Jassa Singh Ramgarhia and Baba Baghel Singh be installed at the Heritage Street.

Others present in the meeting included, senior vice-president Gurmeet Singh Walia, financial secretary HPS Walia, general secretary Surinder Singh Walia, Harinder Singh Walia and Simarpal Singh.
