Kejriwal salutes Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev
New Delhi, March 23: Delhi's activist-turned-Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday saluted revolutionary freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev on their 84th death anniversary.
"Salute to Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev on their martyrdom day," Kejriwal tweeted.
Born in 1907, Bhagat Singh, one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement, was hanged on March 23, 1931 along with Rajguru and Sukhdev in a Lahore prison.
Their memorial is located in Hussainiwala in Punjab.
On Sunday, Kejriwal said the "Shaheedi Divas", meant to mark the hanging of Bhagat Singh and his associates, should be celebrated as "Desh Divas".
