Family members of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale,  also participated in the ceremony that was attended by the chief of the taksal, Harnam Singh Dhumma, and SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar.

Dhumma underlined that the gallery will perpetuate the memory of the people who lost their life in Ghallughara June 1984. Hitting back at CM Capt Amarinder, he said the Taksal was doing nothing to vitiate peace and it was the CM who was trying to create trouble with his statements.

The SGPC on June 15 gave a go ahead for setting up a photo gallery of Sikh “martyrs” killed during Operation Bluestar, the 1984 army operation to flush out militants from the Golden Temple, at its executive committee meet.

The SGPC is likely to provide list of the pilgrims who were killed during the operation and efforts are made to gather their portraits too.

“We can’t expect anything better from representative of a political party that designed the attack on the Sri Darabr Sahib,” Dhumma added.


On Tuesday, the CM expressed his displeasure saying the Damdami Taksal is trying foment trouble and is disrupting peace by such activities.
