Looks nice: Amarinder Singh on revamp of Jallianwala Bagh memorial
New Delhi, Aug 31: Pubjab Chief Mininster Amarinder Singh on Tuesday contradicted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's statement criticising the Jallianwala Bagh renovation, which was unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday.
"I don't know what has been removed. To me it looks very nice," said Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh over the renovation of the Jallianwala Bagh.
He was replying to a question on the renovation of the Jallianwala Bagh memorial.
The chief minister was also told by newsmen that Rahul Gandhi had tweeted on the renovation of the Jalianwala Bagh, but he said he did not know about Gandhi's tweet.
Earlier on Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi had termed the revamp of the Jallianwala Bagh memorial an "insult to martyrs", saying only a person who does not know the meaning of martyrdom can inflict such an insult.
Taking to Twitter, the former Congress chief tagged a media report on the outrage on social media over the alleged changes at the Jallianwala Bagh memorial complex with many claiming that it was "destroying history" in the name of a makeover.
Gandhi's attack came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday dedicated to the nation the renovated complex of Jallianwala Bagh memorial.
