The day gone by used to be the centenary of the Jallianwalla Bagh, where virtually 1,600 light protesters enjoy been killed by troopers led by British Frequent Dyer. Mr Venkaiah Naidu had attended a authorities programme within the distance, where homage used to be paid to the martyrs.

Amarinder Singh, he said, used to be “busy in ‘bhakti’ of ‘Congress parivar'”.
“He went to Jallianwala Bagh with naamdar however didn’t fetch it appropriate to support event with Vice Pres. Here is the variation between ‘Rashtrabhakti’ and ‘Parivar bhakti’,” PM Modi said. “Naamdar” is a pejorative for Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

In one other tweet, she said: “Pb CM @capt_amarinder took @RahulGandhi to Sri Akal Takht Sahib however lacked courage to inquire of him to admit the @INCIndia’s sin of demolishing Sikhs’ most realistic likely religio-temporal seat with tanks & mortars. What a disagreement with seek records from for British apology for #JallianwalaBaghMassacre!”
The Chief Minister responded with an equally scathing tweet.
“Did you, your husband @officeofssbadal or his father, Parkash Singh Badal, ever apologise on your sizable grandfather, Sardar Sunder Singh Majithia’s lavish dinner to Gen Dyer on the day of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre? He used to be later knighted in 1926 for his loyalty and his deeds,” he said.
