Press Release by Sd Param Jit Singh Sarna

New Delhi-12-06-2013 S. Paramjit Singh Sarna former President DSGMC in a press statement here today that the Writ Petition filed by me to built the memorial of 1984 Sikh Riots outside the historical Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib has been admitted in the Delhi High Court and notice is issued to the DSGMC, NDMC, Government of NCT of Delhi. He further said that the counsel of the NDMC has submitted to the Court that it is going to issue order within two days for the stoppage of construction of the memorial as the DSGMC has not replied to the show cause notice as well as has not obtained necessary approval/sanctions.

Mr. Sarna said that it is unfortunate and condemnable that the counsel of the DSGMC has given a false statement before the Court during the hearing of the Writ Petition that the DSGMC has not raised even a single brick in connection to the construction of the memorial. It is for the first time in history of the DSGMC that its president has asked the counsel to give false statement to mislead to Court to protect them from any adverse order. Despite the fact that DSGMC today i.e. 12-06-2013 has held a mega function of the foundation laying of the memorial. Structure, platform and the plaque (Foundation Stone) were clearly visible in the live telecast of PTC News.  

He further said that we have brought the facts and merits of the Writ Petition into the notice of the Court that no memorial of any kind can be built inside the historical Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib.

Mr. Sarna categorically said that we are not against the construction of memorial of 1984 Anti Sikh Riots, but it should be built outside the complex of historical Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib. We have already requested the Govt of Delhi for the allotment of land for it during my tenure as a president of DSGMC.

Mr. Sarna Said that if this memorial will be raised outside the historical Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, he will be the first person to provide all financial and other assistance for it.
