KATHUA: Group of Friends and Charitable Trust Kathua under the patronage of former Member Parliament Ch. Lal Singh organised Saheedi Diwas at Ram Leela ground, Kathua to honour the families of martyrs.
Martyrs families from the whole Kathua District participated in the programme. Huge gathering of people from all walks of life gathered at Kalibari and followed the martyrs families who were sitting in the specially decorated busses.
A sea of humanity turned on the road from Kalibari to Shaheedi Chowk and people raising slogans ‘Veer Shaheed Amar Rahe, Shaheed Parivaar Zindabad’.
One hundred and eighteen families were honoured on the stage by Ch. Lal Singh and other dignitaries on the dias.
People in thousands gathered on the roads to welcome the Shaheedi Parivars and reached Ramleela ground after passing the college road. While addressing the gathering, Ch. Lal Singh said, “Our country is safe because of our martyrs and Dogras, being a marshal race having nationalistic character, have highest number of war heroes who laid down their lives for protecting the country.” It’s this Dogra race only which gave its blood to extend its boundaries upto Skardoo, Gilgit, Baltistan and made our country so proud, Ch Lal Singh said but regretted “Our Governments have never returned back which actually they deserve.”
In a emotional and hard hitting speech, Ch. Lal Singh said, “I am passing through a very critical phase of my life because of my political stand for the empowerment of Jammu but your strength and support has never let me down and I am ready to fight till my last breath and last drop of my blood for the dignity, respect of my people and my country.”
He appealed the gathering to remain united irrespective of any caste, creed and religion which is the only panacea for all the challenges our society is facing these days.
He further said, “I have all my life tried to give equal treatment to all castes, religions and faith and it’s the result of that we have here the strength of people of all religions including Gujjars, Bakarwal, Gaddis, Sippis, Sikh, and Hindus.”
Prominent those on the dias other than families of martyrs include Kanta Andotra Ex-MLA, Dr. Hari Dutt Shishu, Advocate B.S Jamwal, Prof H.R Sharma, Advocate T.N Gupta, Suman Wazir, Jatinder Papu, Narinder Sambyal, Rajinder Singh Bubby, Romesh Tickoo and others.
