Sangrur, July 26

Around 6,500 residents of Kargil martyr Naik Bahadur Singh's native village Banbhaura today expressed resentment against government's failure to construct a memorial to him. Residents have written several times to the authorities concerned, but to no avail.

"We have written letters, met officials and requested for a memorial. We want a memorial so that the village remembers him forever," said Balbir Singh, elder brother of the martyr. Bahadur Singh had joined the Army in 1988.

Sarpanch Kamaljit Kaur said the village had demarcated a piece of land for a statue, but the authorities had done nothing in that regard.

Block Development and Panchayat Officer, Malerkotla, Amandeep Kaur said an application had been received and that she would look into the matter.
