Former Haryana DGP MS Malik said Sunday that a national-level function will be organised at Jat Bhawan in Chandigarh on September 28 to celebrate the birth anniversary of Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh.
Families of martyrs and sportspersons will be honoured on the occasion, he said.
Addressing a press conference, Malik, president of Chandigarh Jat Sabha, said city MP Kirron Kher and Anandpur Sahib (Punjab) MP Manish Tewari will attend the function as guests.
The former DGP said that the Jat Sabha, Akhil Bhartiya Shaheed Samman Sanghrash Samiti and Shaheed Samman Abhiyan will celebrate the birth anniversary of Shaheed Bhagat Singh as Social Unity Day on September 28.
In the press conference, Shaheed Samman Abhiyan coordinator Harpal Singh Rana said Bhagat Singh’s birth anniversary should be a national holiday. Rana also demanded that Chandigarh International Airport be named Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh International Airport. He said a campaign on these demands has been going on for the past 11 years.
