Chandigarh, Dec 6 (UNI) Punjab Congress spokesman Jagmohan Singh Kang today took strong notice of the reported remark of SAD (Amritsar) President Simranjit Singh Mann that Shaheed Bhagat Singh had not contributed towards freedom of the nation.

It was ''uncalled for, highly objectionable, unwarranted, most unfortunate and condemnable'', he said.

Mr Kang said that this statement showed that Mr Mann scant regard for heroes in the history of the freedom struggle as every Punjabi, Indian and the whole world knew that Bhagat Singh was a great revolutionary who sacrificed his life for achieving freedom for the country.

He added that Mr Mann as head of political party ought to desist from issuing such ''irrelevant and irresponsible'' statements which can hurt the sentiments of Indians.
