However, the spokesperon further categorically said that the state government has neither declared any gazetted nor restricted holiday on the martyrdom day of Bhai Jaita ji, which is being observed this year on December 23.

The spokesperson further said that since the Janam Divas of Baba Jeevan Singh ji was on September 5 this year and now the holiday as per CM Channi’s announcement would be included in the list of gazetted holidays to be observed next year i.e. September 5, 2022.
