Chandigarh, Aug 16: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday declared a school holiday on Monday in view of the "strenuous preparations" by children for Independence Day functions across the state.

Thousands of children from government and private schools at various places had been preparing for days in advance for the parade and functions that marked the Independence Day celebrations on Saturday.

Earlier on Saturday, Badal appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to review the "unending saga of discrimination and sheer injustice" allegedly meted out to Punjab by successive Governments at Centre after country's independence.

Badal alleged that despite Punjab's enormous contribution in the country’s freedom struggle, safeguarding its security and sovereignty and making it self-reliant in food production, the State has been discriminated against.
