Tribune News Service

Sangrur, June 19

A day before the “bhog” of Fatehveer Singh, who died after falling in a 150-ft-deep borewell in front of his house in Bhagwanpura village, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has given approval to name the Sunam-Sheron Kainchian to Sheron Longowal road after the late child as a special case.

Though during the collection of mortal remains of child on June 13, his relatives and villagers had announced that they would not allow any officer or politicians to attend the “bhog” of the deceased, but his grandfather Rohi Singh, through a video message, on Wednesday appealed to all to reach the Sunam grain market to pay tributes to the departed soul.

“I request that no one should give any inflammatory speech or statement and we have not stopped anyone from attending the bhog. We request all to attend the bhog on Thursday,” he said.

Punjab PWD Minister Vijay Inder Singla with Sangrur DC Ghanshyam Thori, SSP Dr Sandeep Garg, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) spokesperson Daman Thind Bajwa, PPCC secretary Harman Bajwa and DCC president District Congress Committee Rajinder Singh Raja today visited the family of the deceased on behalf of the Chief Minister.

The minister told the family that the state government had agreed to name the road after the deceased child.

Singla informed that this was other district road (ODR-01) with an approximate length of 11.83 km and was being widened from 5.5 m to 7 m under the CRF scheme.

“A written request was made to the state government by the family of the deceased through the office of the DC, Sangrur. As a special case, the Chief Minister has given approval to name the road after the late child,” Singla added.
