“Even Hukamnama's of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, a Sikh ideology, is in the possession of Captain. The Holy Scripture reads: “Your house is my abode.”  No certificate can be bigger than this,” added the Congress leader.

The four gates of Fatehgarh Sahib were built in the memory of martyrs during the Captain’s regime. Four-time Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal did not bother even to talk about martyrs and panth.
