Amritsar, April 9
Amid the Covid-19 restrictions, the plan to reopen the ‘facelifted’ Jallianwala Bagh has been put on hold yet again. After skipping many deadlines, the unveiling was proposed on April 13. PM Narendra Modi, who is also the chairman of the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial Trust, was slated to inaugurate the monument virtually.
Trust member and former MP Tarlochan Singh said: “The PM was scheduled to inaugurate it online on April 13 at 4 pm, but after consulting with the CMO, the programme was deferred due to the Covid restrictions till April 30,” he said. The memorial was shut on February 15 last year for renovation. The project was to be completed by the first week of April 2020, ahead of the commemoration of 101th year of Jallianwala Bagh massacre on April 13, 2020. — TNS
