Chandigarh, Feb 20, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday led the Vidhan Sabha in paying homage to 10 eminent personalities, including freedom fighters, political personalities and journalists, who had passed away since the last session of the Assembly.

On the first day of the Budget Session (11th session) of the 15th Vidhan Sabha, the House paid its respects to ex-MLA of joint Punjab (prior to reorganization), Chaudhary Khurshid Ahmed, and former MLA Raj Kumar Gupta, along with freedom fighters Gurdev Singh and Darbara Singh.

The House also remembered senior journalist and Editor-in-Chief of Punjab Kesari Publications of Delhi, as well as former MP from Karnal, Ashwini Kumar Chopra. The House paid rich tributes to legendary Punjabi writers Dr. Dalip Kaur Tiwana and Dr. Jaswant Singh Kanwal, besides famous Punjabi folk Singer Lachi Bawa.

Extending their condolences to the bereaved families, the House also paid tributes to four children – Simranjit Singh, Sukhjit Kaur, Navjot Kaur and Arudhya Kumari – who lost their lives in the tragic school van fire incident at Longowal.

A two-minute silence was observed in the memory of departed souls as a mark of respect during the obituary references.

Meanwhile, Speaker Rana Kanwar Pal Singh proposed that homage be paid to all those members who had passed away since the previous session. After the obituary references to the eight eminent personalities and the four children, he passed a resolution for conveying the condolences of the House to their respective families. The resolution was passed by voice vote.

The Speaker also proposed that homage be paid to Journalist Aman Brar, who passed away in the prime of his youth.

On the request of Cooperation Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, the names of three children killed in Tarn Taran trolley cracker blast were also added to the obituary list. On the request of MLA Kultar Singh Sandhwan, the Speaker also consented to include the name of veteran journalist Dalbir Singh to the obituary references.
