Sri Fatehgarh Sahib, December 26, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Sunday paid obeisance at Gurdwara Sri Fatehgarh Sahib on the second day of the annual Shaheedi Sabha dedicated to the martyrdom of Sarbansdani Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s younger sons, Baba Zorawar Singh Ji, Baba Fateh Singh Ji and Mata Gujri Ji.

Meanwhile, in an informal interaction with the mediapersons, the Chief Minister said that in this land of martyrs, a memorial of that great martyr Baba Sangat Singh ji would be established at Fatehgarh Sahib.

Pointing out further, the Chief Minister said that Baba Sangat Singh Ji was martyred at Sri Chamkaur Sahib by the Mughals who mistook him to be Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and his body was brought here from Sri Chamkaur Sahib.

The Chief Minister further said that in Sri Chamkaur Sahib, which he represents in the Vidhan Sabha, the eldest sons of Guru Sahib Ji were martyred and at Sri Fatehgarh Sahib the youngest sons of Dasmesh Pita Ji were martyred hence both these places have a connection.

The Chief Minister disclosed that the Punjab Government has decided to link both the places as a mark of respect to the hallowed martyrs. The Hoshiarpur main road till Sri Chamkaur Sahib beyond the GT Road, Sirhind would be inter connected and the circuit has been named as Mata Gujri Ji Marg. Besides, a letter has been written to the Prime Minister to accord it the status of National Highway.

The Chief Minister also said that the martyrdom of Dasmesh Pita Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s younger sons and Mata Gujri Ji is unparalleled in the history of mankind and today he has come to pay homage to the great martyrs. He said that Guru Sahib sacrificed his life for the sake of humanity.

Replying to the queries of the reporters about the release of the Sikh Captives, (Bandi Singhs), Channi said that the government has started the process of releasing the captives. The Chief Minister, meanwhile, sat in the pangat and ate langar and also served langar in the langars outside Gurudwara Sahib.
