During an anti-encroachment drive last Friday, the DMC had sealed the memorial which was part of an ashram situated on Rajpur Road.
During a press conference here, Bhinder said he has asked the state government to ensure that the memorial be opened immediately, calling the DMC action "illegal".
Hanut Singh, a recipient of the nation's second highest gallantry award, Maha Vir Chakra in the 1971 war, passed away in 2015. Following his demise, a memorial was dedicated to him in the ashram where he lived.
The DMC officials have said the action was taken in accordance with the law.
But, the sealing of the memorial has evoked angry reactions from many, including some civil society groups which termed the action as "unfair".
