Wreath made out of tyre, parties demand probe

A wreath laid at martyr’s memorial.

Fatehgarh Sahib, August 1

PCC president Navjot Singh Sidhu’s visit to Fatehgarh Sahib to pay tribute to Shaheed Udham Singh has courted controversy. The SAD, AAP and SAD (Sanyukt) have alleged on the 82nd Martyrdom Day of Shaheed Udham Singh, the flower wreath made of worn-out tyres were laid on the sepulcher at Fatehgarh Sahib by Sidhu, MLAs Kuljit Singh Nagra and Gurpreet Singh, and other Congress leaders. Condemning the incident, SAD (Sanyukat) leader Bir Devinder Singh said the state government should immediately order a fact-finding magisterial probe to fix the responsibility for the lapse.

SDM Sanjeev Sharma said it might be a conspiracy as many people paid respect to martyr after Sidhu. He said the matter must be probed. — OC
