Uttarakhand Congress takes a dig centre for extinguishing Amar Jawan Jyoti at India Gate

Dehradun: The Uttarakhand Congress on Friday took a dig at the BJP–led Centeral government, terming the extinguishing of “Amar Jawan Jyoti” at the India Gate as the “King’s Arbitrariness” to build his palace, “Modi Mahal”.

An official release by the Uttarakhand Congress said, “Amar Jawan Jyoti has been burning continuously for the last 50 years. It is a symbol of our bravery, courage, sacrifice and self-respect, but today it will be extinguished. The new address of Amar Jyoti established for 50 years at India Gate will now be War Memorial. When the symbolic place of martyr’s sacrifice and valour is changed to build a king’s palace and the flame that burns relentlessly is extinguished, it not only tells the story of that king’s arbitrariness but also the respect in his heart towards the martyrs.”

It also further stated that “martyrs” were “insulted” by conducting laser show in Jallianwala Bagh. The Uttarakhand Congress unit also claimed that the Central government is also making efforts to change the old heritage like Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad.
