Jalandhar, February 26
As Union minister Harsimrat Badal has been trying to ward off controversy against her great-grandfather Sunder Singh Majithia, Cabinet minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa today said she needed to check her facts related to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
Talking to the media, the minister, who has been maintaining that Sunder Singh Majithia had honoured General Dyer after the massacre, said, “It was not the Sikhs who got Majithia appointed as the SGPC head in 1925 as claimed by Harsimrat. In fact, he was not made chief but was given the title of Sarbrah in 1925 by the British government for toeing their line.”
Reacting on the controversy of a viral audio of Cabinet minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu trying to bully a Punjab Police DSP, Randhawa said an inquiry should be conducted against both. — TNS
