Capt opposes move to remove Congress chief from Jallianwala trust By Indian Times Daily

Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has described as “completely wrong” the move to bring a bill which seeks to remove the Congress president as a permanent member in a trust that runs the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial.

The bill, moved by Culture Minister Prahlad Singh Patel in the Lok Sabha on Monday, states that it seeks to “delete” the mention of ‘President of the Indian National Congress’ as a trustee.

The stated aim of the move is to make the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial apolitical. A similar bill was brought by the previous government but it could not get the parliamentary nod and lapsed.

“It is completely wrong to remove the Congress party (president) from the trust. The Congress has been associated with the Jallianwala Bagh (memorial) from the day it was set up,” he told reporters here on Tuesday.
