Tewari seeks ASI review of Jallianwala Bagh renovation
NEW DELHI, December 9,2022
Sri Anandpur Sahib MP and National Spokesperson of the Congress, Manish Tewari today demanded that the Archaeological Survey of India must review the renovation work done in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar.
Raising the matter in the Lok Sabha today, Tewari said, the renovation had caused a sense of hurt among Punjabis as certain historical events, which were depicted there were disturbed, besides the historic names of places having been changed.
He mentioned several examples where the renovation had caused serious distortions and disturbances at the historical site.
Tewari demanded that the government of India should depute a team of Archaeological Survey of India to Jallianwala Bagh and examine the renovation and the unnecessary changes there and correct all the wrongs done there.
