The nation pays tributes to freedom fighters – Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev – on their martyrdom day today.
On this day in 1931, British rulers had executed them in Lahore for their revolutionary activities against the empire. They were hanged a day before the scheduled date of execution. A number of programmes have been organised in Punjab and across the country to mark the day.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru on the occasion of Shaheed Diwas. In a tweet, Mr Modi said, the sacrifice of these great sons of Maa Bharati will remain an inspiration for every generation.
