The Punjab government today said the state-level function to commemorate the 172nd Martyrdom Day of General Sham Singh Attariwala was held at the India Gate-War Memorial, in Attari, and not in his native village.
The official said there was only one state-level event to mark the occasion, which the chief minister attended as scheduled and specified in a state government advertisement in various newspapers this morning.
There was, therefore, no question of the chief minister skipping the programme, he added.
