Patiala, June 20

To pay tributes to martyrs, who were killed in a clash with Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh earlier this week, the Education Department has decided to rename government schools in their native villages.

In Patiala's Seel village, Government Primary School has been named as Martyr Naib Subedar Mandeep Singh Primary School, while in Gurdaspur's Bhojraj village, Government Middle School has been rechristened Martyr Naib Subedar Satnam Singh Middle School. Besides, the department renamed Government Middle School at Birewala Dogran village in Mansa after Sepoy Gurtej Singh and a high school at Tolawal village in Sangrur after Sepoy Gurbinder Singh.

Amarjeet Singh, District Education Officer (DEO), said it was small gesture to pay tributes to the soldiers for their sacrifice and bravery. He said he had already conveyed the message to the Block Primary Education Officer (BPEO) and village sarpanches to make the necessary changes. The signboards of all these schools would be changed by next week, he added.
