Fatehgarh Sahib, November 19

Fatehgarh Sahib MLA Kuljit Singh Nagra today staged a dharna and blocked traffic on the Sirhind-Chandigarh road in protest against the demolition of boundary walls of a beautification project near Gurdwara Jyoti Saroop Sahib by the manager of Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib and other SGPC employees on the pretext that the land on which the projects were undertaken belonged to the SGPC.

The beautification project was initiated by the Tourism Department at a cost of Rs 15 crore to highlight Sikh history at an open museum-cum-theme park. The foundation stone was laid by Tourism Minister Charanjit Singh Channi last month. The dharna was lifted after the police filed an FIR. — OC
