By 121 News

SAS Nagar 12th October:- Under the collaboration between the Government of Punjab and the Partition Museum, Amritsar, the Jallianwala Bagh Centenary Commemoration Exhibition held at Govt College Phase-6 here today. The initiative for this multimedia exhibition came from the Chief Minister of Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh, Charanjit Singh Channi, Minister of Technical Education & Industrial Training, Employment Generation, Tourism & Cultural Affairs with the active support of Others.

The Exhibition has been inaugurated by the Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) SAS Nagar Jagdeep Saigal in the presence of Ms. Komal Broca, Principal of the Government College and many others. This multimedia exhibition will be open for public until 20th October and will have free entry. After exhibiting in five different cities namely Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Bathinda, Patiala  the exhibition finally ends its journey here in SAS Nagar (Mohali). Lauding the efforts to organize the event, Jagdeep Saigal appreciated the exhibition and said that this is the unique way to apprise our people about this massacre.

Operations Officer, The Arts and Cultural Heritage Trust, New Delhi, Ms. Pari Baishya said that the Exhibition focuses on the history of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The Partition Museum's research has uncovered a number of original materials in the form of newspapers, reports and photographs from that time. This exhibition draws all of this into a larger historical narrative that begins with the events leading up to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, and ends with a look at its aftermath. This exhibition will also tell the story of Punjab in 1919 in a new way—through its impact on people's lives. The exhibition also focuses on the fact that the Jallianwala Bagh massacre was one part of a much larger system of colonial oppression in Punjab that lasted for months, even years.
