Jassa Singh Ahluwalia of Kapurthala state remembered

Hundreds of local residents assembled at the main gurdwara here to pay tributes to Sikh warrior and founder of Kapurthala State, Jassa Singh Ahluwalia, on his 293rd birth anniversary.

The founder of Nawab Jassa Singh Ahluwalia Trust, Shatrujit Singh, and his son Suryajit Singh, came especially from Delhi to attend the celebrations.

Famous ragis recited hymns at a kirtan darbar held on the occasion. Langar was also served. Shatrujit Singh announced installation of a fountain in the premises of the gurdwara. Trust members demanded a chair in the name of Jassa Singh Ahluwalia at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar.

The state government holds a heritage festival in October every year to mark the death anniversary of Ahluwalia.
