Jallianwala Bagh memorial revamp: Rahul slams Centre's 'insult of martyrs'

Aug 31, 2021 12:54 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Days after PM Modi inaugurated the renovated complex of Jallianwala Bagh Memorial, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday termed the government's move an "insult to martyrs", saying only a person who does not know the meaning of martyrdom can inflict such an insult.

The former Congress chief's attack came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday dedicated to the nation the renovated complex of Jallianwala Bagh memorial.

In a tweet in hindi on Tuesday Rahul Gandhi said, "Disrespect to Jallianwala Bagh Martyrs will be done by those who do not know the meaning of martyrdom.

In Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar on April 13, 1919, General Reginald Dyer ordered firing on the peaceful protest against the arrest of two nationalist leaders. Hundreds of Indians were killed that day when British soldiers blocked all exits and started firing on them.

In the renovation, the walls of the narrow lane through which General Dyer led the troops in the area have been embossed with sculptures.
