Punjab guv declines to attend Queen’s birthday celebrations


Punjab guv declines to attend Queen’s birthday celebrations

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, April 10

Punjab Governor V P Singh Badnore has declined to participate in the birthday celebrations of the Queen of England, being held here by the British Deputy High Commission. 

The celebrations are being held on Wednesday night.

He has said since the celebration is on the eve of the centenary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, and it has been a very emotive issue for Punjab, it may not be appropriate for him to attend the function.

Badnore said, “It was only yesterday that British Minister Mark Field responding to a debate at Westminster Hall in the House of Commons expressed ‘deep regrets’ and assured the House that the issue pertaining to an apology for the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre Amritsar ‘was in progress’. Even the British Prime Minister Theresa May has termed Jallianwala Bagh tragedy ‘a shameful scar’.”
