Sangrur, March 14

Under the banner of the Martyr Udham Singh Memorial Sangharsh Committee, residents of Sunam Udham Singh Wala today staged a protest demanding start of the construction of the memorial.

“Various governments have failed to start the construction of the Udham Singh memorial. The residents will intensify their agitation in coming days if the government failed to take required steps immediately,” said Jangir Singh, president of the committee.

Last year on July 31, Cabinet minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot had announced that Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh had sanctioned Rs 2.28 crore for the memorial. He had said the first instalment of Rs 1 crore would be released soon and the construction work would also commence soon.

On December 25, 2016, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal laid the foundation stone of the memorial.

“The CM has released Rs 50 lakh from his discretionary quota for the construction of the memorial while the sanctioned amount of Rs 2.28 crore will also be released soon. We are regularly taking up the issue with the authorities concerned,”said Harman Bajwa, secretary, PPCC. He met the protesters and convinced them to lift their stir.
