Amritsar, Apr 6 UNI | 4 months ago

Senior Congress leader and former Deputy Speaker Bir Devinder Singh today asked Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia to learn about Congress leader Capt Amarinder Singh and his contribution towards the nation. before making any comments.

Reacting to Mr Majithia's statement asking where was Capt Singh when bullets were flying in Punjab, Mr Devinder marked, "Majithia's statement comes from ignorance as he seems to have read no history".

He told Mr Majithia that unlike many leaders who took shelter in safe custody of government guest houses after having stage managed their arrest, Capt Singh worked on the field.

He reminded Mr Majithia about Capt Singh's stay in Amritsar during 1965 Indo-Pak War as an ADC to Lt Gen Harbaksh Singh.

He said Capt Singh rejoined the Army to face the enemy as otherwise, he had already taken premature retirement. He said had they not done so, Amritsar might have been with Pakistan and so would be Mr Majitha.

The senior Congress leader advised Mr Majithia to avoid commenting on such issues, when he had no knowledge of history.
