Capt Amarinder says ‘No’ to relieving Dr Hamdard of Jang-E-Azadi Memorial responsibilities

Chandigarh, July 2, 2020: Punjab Chief Minister
Captain Amarinder Singh has
refused the request of Editor-in-
Chief, Daily Ajit, Dr. Barjinder
Singh Hamdard to relieve him as
Member Secretary of the Jang-e-
Azadi Memorial Foundation and
Chairperson of its Executive Committee.
Pointing out that the Jang-e-Azadi
Museum was not just an important
project for the State Government but
the labour of love of Dr Hamdard,
the Chief Minister has urged him to
continue in these positions to ensure
the successful completion of this
prestigious project.
In a letter to the Editor-in-Chief,
the Chief Minister said that he
always held Dr. Hamdard in high
regard not only because of their
long-standing personal association
and friendship but because of his
strong commitment to Punjab and
the welfare of its people.
“You have so admirably led the
project right from its inception with
great devotion and commitment.
Fortunately, we are now close to
completion of all the phases of this
historic project that encapsulates the
history of Punjab’s contribution in
India’s freedom struggle,” said Captain
Amarinder Singh.
Expressing the confidence that the
last phase of the project would also
be commissioned soon, once the
state has overcome the COVID-19
pandemic, the Chief Minister said
the meeting of the Foundation had
to be unfortunately postponed at
short notice due to certain other
engagements and once due to his illhealth.
The Chief Minister said that he
had asked his office to reschedule
the meeting at a date of mutual convenience
to take forward the project
expeditiously.
